Jaromir Jagr had a great game, creating a number of quality chances, but Peters shut him down, especially in the middle of the 2nd period on a Bruins 5 on 3 chance.
Tuukka played pretty sloppy letting in a couple of savable shots. The defense again played rather sluggish along with a number of the forwards. Maybe they are waiting to unleash in the playoffs? Let's hope so. Maybe the Swede Soderberg will inject some life into this bunch.
