RALEIGH, N.C. — Shawn Thornton and Chris Kelly are two of the Bruins’ more responsible forwards. But in the second period Monday night at PNC Arena, turnovers by Thornton and Kelly turned into a pair of Carolina goals within 50 seconds.
First, Jordan Staal picked off a Thornton pass. Seconds later, Jeff Skinner went upstairs on Anton Khudobin. Less than a minute later, Alexander Semin stepped in front of Kelly’s clearing attempt. After the turnover, Eric Staal netted the tying goal.
