Bruins Vs. Capitals Score Update: McQuaid Injured, B's Remain Scoreless After First

Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid left late in the first period after being checked awkwardly into the boards by Washington forward Jason Chimera behind Tim Thomas. Chimera was assessed a five-minute major charging penalty and a game misconduct. The Bruins were unable to convert on the power play that resulted, and the Bruins will now skate with just five defensemen for the remainder of the game.

The rest of the period was utterly uninspiring. There were only a total of nine shots in the period, seven of which belonged to the Bruins. But neither team really got rolling and the scoring chances weren't really there for much of the period.

Brad Marchand had the best opportunity early in the period, taking a Chara rebound and trying to pick a corner, but shooting too high over the net.

While the B's spent the majority of the first playing against goaltender Tomas Vokoun, with less than two minutes to go, he was replaced with Michal Neuvirth. Vokoun has been out with a groin injury, and looked as though he could have tweaked it again.

Meanwhile, Washington superstar Alex Ovechkin picked up just under four minutes of ice time and has just one shot on goal. Though, that is one of the two the entire team has as a whole.
