 The Boston Bruins put forth a complete, dominating effort as they thrashed the New York Rangers 5-2. While at times it seemed as though the Bruins were going to let this one slip through their finger tips, they stood tall and now lead the series 2-0.  The Bruins and Rangers traded goals in the first period. Torey Krug scored his second goal in as many games to give the Bruins the lead. But the lead wouldn't last three minutes as Ryan Callahan cashed in on a Brad Marchand turnover.     That process would repeat itself in the second. Gregory Campbell gave the Bruins the lead just 2:24 into the period, putting a rebound of a Krug shot past Henrik Lundqvist. This time the lead would last just 56 seconds before Rick Nash tied the game. But the Bruins wouldn't let the game enter the third period tied. Johnny Boychuk gave the Bruins the lead.  It didn't take the Bruins very long to extend the lead in the third. Just 26 seconds in Brad Marchand extended the lead to two on a play very similar to his game-winner in Game 1. Milan Lucic finished the scoring, tapping a lose puck past Lundqvist.     Krug had his best game as a Bruin. He scored a goal and added an assist in 12:56. With the way he is playing, its going to be a tough call when Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference or Wade Redden is ready to come back. Krug has provided a nice offensive spark from the back end.  While at times the score may have made this game seem close, the Bruins were in control for most of the game. Aside from the end of the first after Callahan scored, the Bruins had little trouble doing what they wanted. The Bruins were clearly building off the overtime from Game 1 and it showed. They need to continue to build off these performances.  The Bruins and Rangers will play Game 3 on Tuesday night in New York.Be sure to check out other great articles at Sports Media 101.
