Bruins Vs. Canadiens Score Update: B's Up 1-0 On Habs With Help From Tim Thomas

The Bruins scored early--just 1:23 into the period, and credit was given to the newly reacquired Jordan Caron. Johnny Boychuk sent the puck around the boards, and Montreal goaltender Carey Price went to cut it off behind the net. However, the puck took an awkward bounce off the wall and came right out front to the waiting Caron who easily tapped it in the open net.

But that was the end of the good news for the Bruins for the period. The Habs were able to capitalize on the rest of the period, though the scoreboard wasn't indicative of it.

That's where Tim Thomas stepped in. He made 16 saves, and every last one of them was as important as the other. The B's were notorious for giving up turnovers both in their own zone and the neutral zone, and they were lucky Thomas bailed them out.

They will enter the second period on the penalty kill after Benoit Pouliot took a boarding penalty late in the first period.
