Bruins Vs. Blues: Boston Leads 3-2 After First Period

The Boston Bruins jumped out to a 3-2 lead over the St. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO, on Wednesday night. Two of the league’s top teams battled it out in a game with defense sorely lacking.

The Bruins jumped out to a 2-0 lead after little more than six minutes of play. The Blues turned the puck over in their own zone, and Brad Marchand walked in for an easy goal against Brian Elliot, who struggled in the net for the first 20 minutes.

Milan Lucic scored next on a long slap shot that deflected off Patrik Berglund’s stick.

Chris Stewart put the Blues on the board, picking up his own rebound in front of a crowed net.

With the score tied at 2-2, Chris Kelly scored with less than a minute to play, giving the Bruins the momentum as they skated off the ice.

Brian Elliot allowed three goals on six shots in the first period. Tim Thomas allowed two goals on nine shots.
