BOSTON, MA – Trailing Carolina by one goal, Boston’s goaltender Tuukka Rask, (20 saves) attempted to jumpstart his team’s offense by recording various highlight reel saves. Yet, Rask’s efforts didn’t exactly help, as the Hurricanes took advantage of Boston’s lackluster player to notch their second goal of the evening, which Tuomo Ruutu connected on a backhanded rebound for the score at 16:41.
The Hurricanes tallied 14 shots in 20 minutes while the Bruins finished the period with five.
Interesting Note: The Bruins have been held scoreless following the second period eight time this season. Also, Ward has two shutouts this season, and 18 in his NHL career. (Both notes were provided by the Bruins PR/Media Staff.).
