Bruins Vs. Sharks Score Update: B's Fall 1-0 Early In First Period

Though the Bruins had a rhythm going back in Boston, it might have been left behind on the East coast as they looked sloppy and disoriented, falling behind 1-0 after the first 20 minutes of play.

It didn't even take four minutes for San Jose to put a goal in the back of the net, and it came off a couple of unfortunate plays and bad decisions by the B's. A turnover in the Bruins own zone, led the Sharks to continue an attack on goaltender Tim Thomas. Though he was able to save a couple of the shots, the rebounds weren't cleared and San Jose forward Joe Pavelski put the puck through, giving the Sharks the 1-0 lead.

Though this is only the second time these two teams have played each other this year, both games started out in similar fashion--eerily similar.

Back on October 22, Pavelski scored the first goal of the game, less than two minutes into the game at that time. That was the only goal scored during the first period in that game as well.

The one large difference was the opportunities and shots on goal. The Sharks held Boston to just five shots this first period, while the B's let only eight shots through to Thomas.
