Bruins squandered a power play that had the whole unit of Bergeron, Krejci, Recchi, Chara and Hunwick play the full two minutes.

Sobotka drew a second penalty just moments later,  he’s playing for a contract next year and he know’s it. He may not end up here in Boston next year with the logjam of highly regarded prospects, in addition to Bergeron, Krejci and Savard, but if he plays this well the rest of the playoffs he’ll likely be playing in the NHL next year even if it is in a different teams uniform.

Sturm turned a powerplay int a holding the stick when he pressed someone stick into his stomach with his arm.

Bruins had great effort for most of the first twelve to fourteen minutes and then made some silly plays with Sturm and Ference getting caught retaliating.

The Bruins need to simply do what brought them to the dance in the third period:  Skate hard, hit smart and hard, and put the puck on net.
