Bruins vs. Canadiens: Patrice Bergeron Starts Things Off Right For Bruins, 1-0

Once again, the Bruins couldn’t get out of the period without trying out their power play unit. Fortunately for the Bruins, they were able to capitalize on one of extra-man advtanges, courtesy of, well, mostly Montreal goaltender Carey Price.

The faceoff was to the right of Price, after Petteri Nokelainen was called for interference. Bergeron stepped up with Tomas Plekanec and ended up breaking his stick as soon as the puck dropped. However, Plekanec made a routine backhanded draw to Price, who was caught sleeping, letting the puck hit the inside of his skate and in through his five-hole.

That goal marked the only goal of the period, though the shots were more evenly distributed. The Bruins had that advantage as well, putting up 10, while the Habs had six.
