CSNNE.comCALGARY Here are five thoughts from the third period with the Bruins beating the Flames by a 3-1 score after 60 minutes at the Scotiabank Saddledome. The Bruins' new look lineup cooled off a Calgary team thats 7-1-2 in its last 10 games.1)Tyler Seguin getting some serious third period minutes in a 2-0 game in Calgary with 20-something games to go in the season. Thats a good move by the coaching staff and hes responding by getting stronger and stronger on the puck.2)Three takeaways, an assist and 11 of 15 faceoff wins for Patrice Bergeron on a night when you didnt hear his name much, but he was winning battles all over the ice.3)Michael Ryder caught a high stick from Curtis Glencross that gave the Bruins a four-minute power play to sandwiched between the second and third period, but he was back out there for the final 20 minutes.4)Four blocked shots for Tomas Kaberle. Never knew that was a big part of his overall hockey game, but hes been doing it pretty consistently with the Bs in the two games since he arrived.5)Tim Thomas had Olli Jokinen, Jarome Iginla and the rest of the Flames shaking their heads in exasperation and frustration by the end of their loss. Guess the Tuukka Rask-inspired vacation over the last week helped the Tank. Nothing he could do on the Curtis Glencross power play goal at the end of the third.
