The Hurricanes came to life late in the first period, and they didn't slow down in the second, firing 19 shots on Tim Thomas in the period. Through two periods, they have 38 shots on goal, but they haven't been able to break the 1-1 tie. The most shots on goal for a Bruins opponent in a game this season is 46, which the Penguins had on Nov. 10. Thomas made 42 saves in that contest, a 7-4 Bruins victory. The Bruins began the period shorthanded because of a Thomas roughing penalty at the end of the first, and penalties on Nathan Horton and Johnny Boychuk had the Bruins down a man three times in the period (5:12). The Hurricanes also took a pair of penalties, and the Bruins are 1-for-4 on the man advantage entering the third.
