While the Bruins’ second line is struggling to score, they are finding ways to contribute.
Down 1-0 in the closing seconds of the second period, forward David Krejci made an unbelievable block on an open net to keep the deficit at one going into the second intermission.

On the play in question, defenseman Torey Krug tried to clear the puck but whiffed on a pass and got tangled up with a Blues player in his own zone.
Pat Maroon then corralled the puck and put a pass in front of the net to Alex Pietrangelo.
Tuukka Rask over committed on the pass and found himself facedown on the ice out of his box leaving a seemingly open net for Pietrangelo.
The Blues defenseman then put a shot on net, but Krejci came out of nowhere to deflect the puck away.
Had that shot gone in, the Blues would have taken a 2-0 lead into the third period and had even more momentum.
