Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 7: Patrice Bergeron Gives Boston 1-0 Lead After First

Patrice Bergeron let millions of Bruins fans exhale after he scored to game's first goal 14:37 into the opening period, giving the B's a one goal lead over the Vancouver Canucks heading into the first intermission in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C.

Bergeron's goal came right off the faceoff on an assist from Brad Marchand. Boston had just five shots on net in the first period while Vancouver registered eight shots.

Vancouver put the Bruins on the hot seat in the first ten minutes of the game, keeping the pressure on and the puck in the B's end of the ice.

Tim Thomas was ready, stopping everything he saw in the first twenty. Thomas turned away all eight shots he faced, continuing his streak of extremely hot netminding. Roberto Luongo was solid in the first period, only letting the puck past him once.
