Public Skate: 2nd Period - Bruins 0 Maples Leafs 1

Bruins come out with no gusto, and find themselves behind after the opening frame.

Boston trails the Maple Leafs after 20 minutes of play. Tuukka Rask made 10 of 11 stops, the only one getting by coming off the stick of Colin Greening (and possibly Ben Smith). Meanwhile, Jonathan Bernier has stopped all 9 of the Bruins shots, only one of which - a breakaway from David Krejci - was all that dangerous.

We did learn that William Nylander has a damn fine head of hair, and also might do stunts for former Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm Joffrey Baratheon.

But there weren't a lot of positives to the start of this one. Can Bruins play 40 minutes of hockey and still pull out a victory? Or a point?
