Bruins Vs. Capitals, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 7: Boston Down 0-1 After 1st Period

The Boston Bruins are down 1-0 after one period in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Washington Capitals. The Bruins outshot the Caps 11-5 in the period, but Washington caught a big break when John Carlson's wrist shot from just outside the right circle was ever-so-slightly deflected off the stick of Matt Hendricks around goaltender Tim Thomas.

That fluky goal is the difference so far in a game that the Bruins have had plenty of opportunities to take advantage of. Boston got a powerplay chance late in the period after Jeff Schultz was sent to the box for tripping Brad Marchand. Washington stymied Boston's offensive attack, however, leaving the Bruins scoreless.
