Public Skate: Bruins v. Oilers 2nd Period

Raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by that period.

Jordan Eberle netted the first goal for Edmonton while defense was......???????????????????????????????? Brad Marchand and Matt Beleskey both with excellent scoring chances because Edmonton's defense is...well, there's a lot left to be desired. But GOSH DIDDLY DARNIT, CAM TALBOT. WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE GOOD. And just like that, the Oilers were winning. Just when we thought our favorite Bard would put us on the scoreboard, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scores on a rebound so juicy, the ice was sticky after.

So far, we've gone on the powerplay twice- once for a trip by Darnell Nurse, another for a boarding call on Taylor Hall. Well, the second one put us on the PP for a mere 25 seconds, but that's something, right?

Two periods left. I might need some holiday nog for this one.
