The Bruins did not bring their best effort to the first two periods at the TD Garden last night but came alive in the third period fueled by some hard-nosed effort by Marchand who put the puck in the back of the net while being mauled on the powerplay and by Seidenberg’s miracle center ice goal.

I’m sure Craig Anderson is going to get ribbed by his teammates for the next week.
