The two top teams in the NHL met up at the TD Banknorth Garden on Tuesday night. The Eastern-conference-leading Boston Bruins had 85 points, and the Sharks topped the West with 79. Milan Lucic had two goals in the first period to give the B’s a 2-1 lead for most of the game. Unfortunately for Boston, their solid game would fall apart in the third period.
Boston was 0-4 on the power play, and sloppy play late in the game led to a four-goal third period for the Shark, including a 9:48 goal by former Bruin Joe Thornton. Shark left winger Ryane Clone took home the first star, with an outstanding 3 assists (including the game tying and game winning goals). Boston’s left winger Lucic’s two goals got him the second star.
The Boston Bruins embark on a six-game road trip starting with a game against the Devils in NJ on Friday, Feburary 13th.
