March 07, 2009 - 9:22 am

19:35: Good bid by Milan Lucic from the doorstep after completely cleaning defenseman Matt Walker's clock in the corner to open the second period. 16:24: The crossbar continues to be unkind to the Blackhawks as Martin Havlat had a great play from the left faceoff circle in looking off Dave Bolland and firing away the Bruins net. The puck beat Thomas, but rocketed off the crossbar and back out of the net. Close call once again for the Spoked 'B'. 13:07: Juggling save of a Troy Brouwer shot from the high slot by Tim Thomas following a close call to a puck that close to off-sides for the Blackhawks. 12:50: First penalty of the game award goes to Aaron Ward for hooking. 6:51: Great pad save right in front on a bang-bang shot by Dustin Byfuglien, who is having a pretty solid game for Chicago. 6:18: Holding penatly on Andrew Ference as he attempted to break up a furious Martin Havlat rush to the  B's net. 4:49: Power play goal for Jonathan Toews after a pretty gutsy job of goaltending and penalty killing for the Bruins. Chicago magic man Pat Kane worked the puck down in the right corner for Toews, who wheeled toward the net, shot the puck and got a fortunate bounce off Aaron Ward's body in front of the net to tie things at 1-1. 4:18: David Krejci answers right back while camped out by the Blackhawks net. He took an Andrew Ference shot off the bread basket, and then tucked the puck in short side before Huet could respond.  3:48: Mark Recchi shook off a big hit in front of the net and followed with a beautiful tip of a Dennis Wideman shot from the high slot to make it 3-1. 1:47: Great back-to-back stops by Huet on a pair of Patrice Bergeron power play swipes in front of the Chicago net. The B's lead the Blackhawks by a 3-1 score after some shock and awe with 00:45 to go in the second period.
