Sharks Rally to Beat Bruins in Third Period

The two best teams in the NHL. Joe Thornton returns to Boston once again. The Sharks rally for an improbable win…OK maybe it wasn’t totally storybook for the Bruins, as they saw their third period lead evaporate into a late two-goal deficit in a 5-2 loss to the Sharks. The Bruins entered the game 26-0-2 when leading after two periods.

Milan Lucic scored his 12th and 13th goals of the season in the first period to help the Bruins grab a 2-1 lead, but Tim Thomas could not hold lead early in the third period. Thomas allowed goalsĀ to Patrick Marleau, Milan Michalek, and a critical goal to Joe Thornton 9:48 into the third period to give the Sharks a 4-2 lead. The Sharks later added insult to injury with an empty-netter late in the game.

Thomas finished with 26 saves against 30 shots, doing the bulk of his good work in the first two periods. He allowed three goals in the third on 12 shots.

Chuck Kobasew had 14:35 of ice time and finished with a -3. He also missed his three shots on goal. Not good…

Next up for the Bruins is a date with the Devils Friday night at 7 p.m.
