There's a growing trend with the Bruins, and it's almost predictable. It had been just the Black and Gold that often found the back of the net more than once in a matter of seconds, but this time the Oilers tried it themselves and took advantage of it.
The Bs were the first on the board again tonight however, with a goal by defenseman Johnny Boychuk with a rocket from the blueline. A goal with an added fistpump for flair gave the Bruins the lead 7:11 into the first period.
A minute and 44 seconds later, Jordan Caron scored his first goal of the season, putting the Bruins up 2-0 with a goal trickling under Edmonton netminder Devan Dubnyk's pads.
Edmonton came back in hurry though, scoring two goals even faster than the Bruins had. 29 seconds separated the two goals from Ryan Smyth and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, tying the game back up with under seven minutes to go in the period.
Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask faced 12 shots and stopped ten of them. Dubnyk saw similar numbers and stopped 11 of 13.
The Bruins will start the second period with 17 seconds left on a power play, after Theo Peckham went to the sin bin for roughing late in the first period. That was the only penalty in the whole first frame.
