CSNNE.comBOSTON Here are five thoughts from the third period with the Bruins falling to the Rangers by a 1-0 score at TD Garden after 60 minutes of sleepy Saturday hockey.1)Tough afternoon for David Krejci, who was coughing up a lot of pucks trying to make plays and couldnt get in good synch with his wingers. 2)Also a frustrating afternoon for Milan Lucic, who couldnt get position in front of the net near Henrik Lundqvist and also took a pair of slashing penalties after getting drilled by Dan Girardi into the boards in the second period.3)Rich Peverley had the best chance of the day when he snapped off a top shelf wrister from the left faceoff circle, but Henrik Lundqvist was able to make a snappy glove save on the bid.4)Dennis Seidenberg finished with a minus-1, but he had another good game leading the Bruins with four shots on net and providing a couple of solid hits on Rangers players. He looks like hes playing some of his best hockey at the very end of the season.5)Four kills for the Boston PK unit, which says that the Bruins werent moving their feet enough through the game but also says that the killers are on the right track after really keeping them away from the net.
