GIF: David Krejci Slams Dennis Wideman Head First Into The Boards During Game 1

Both the Boston Bruins and the Washington Capitals are off to slow starts during the first period Game 1 of the 2012 NHL Playoffs. Nearing the end of the first period, neither team has been able to light up the scoreboard yet on a combined 13 shots on goal. There have been a few heavy hits, however, perhaps none bigger than David Krejci's slamming former Bruin Dennis Wideman head first into the boards.

The hit deservedly drew the first penalty of the game, but the Caps' were unable to capitalize. So far, the Bruins heavy been slightly more aggressive, recording nine shots on goal to five for Washington.
