Bruins Vs. Flames: Three Goals In First Period Spark Bruins Ahead of Flames

Any sort of fatigue the Bruins might have been feeling last night was quickly taken care of as the Bruins blew open the game, putting up three goals in the first period, and giving them a 3-0 lead.

The scoring didn't take long for the B's, and it started with the line that was missing star forward Brad Marchand who was scratched with flu like symptoms. Replacement Benoit Pouliot broke into the zone and passed it off to Patrice Bergeron who wrapped around the net and fed it right out front to Tyler Seguin who tapped it into the net for the goal 1:14 into the period.

Lucic followed Seguin's lead and came back at 3:17 and scored a rather odd goal. He wasn't even aiming for the net, but his pass deflected off Olli Jokinen near the faceoff circle and the puck took a bad bounce and found it's way to the back of the net. Flames called a timeout immediately, and it was only the fourth shot the Flames faced.

With 12:20 left to go in the first, Flames forward Tom Kostopoulos was sent to the penalty box for tripping, and the Bruins were able to capitalize on their misfortunes. Just over a minute into the man advantage, David Krejci came up with the goal after taking a cross-crease pass from Rich Peverley and one timing it past Leland Irving, for his second point of the game.

The Bruins are 10-1-0 when leading after the first period, while on the other side, Calgary is a weak 1-11-0 when they trail after the first.
