Capitals Vs. Bruins, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 6: David Krejci, Rich Peverley Score As Boston Leads 2-1 After 1st Period

A back-and-forth first period finished with the Boston Bruins leading the Washington Capitals 2-1. Boston's David Krejci scored on the power-play with 3:14 remaining at the Verizon Center, and helped the Bruins earn an early advantage as they try to avoid having this best-of-seven series end.

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas made eight saves, two of them coming late in the period at very close range, while Rich Peverley scored the game's first goal, 5:56 into the period, on a tip-in from a shot from Patrice Bergeron.

The lead didn't last long, however, as Washington's Mike Green answered about four minutes later.
