Bruins Vs. Maple Leafs: Turnovers Keep Game Gridlocked 0-0 After First Period

Lucic recorded the only penalty of the period for the Bruins, with a tripping call with 2:11 left. However, just 22 seconds into the man advantage, the Leafs killed their opportunity, sending Clarke MacArthur to the box for tripping as well.

Trading penalties pretty much described the entire game up to that point for both teams. There was a lot of back and forth action, but neither team really got a grasp or an upper hand over the other.

But boy were there turnovers.

Boston was able to put 10 shots on net, while the Leafs were limited to just seven on Tuukka Rask. Both goaltenders seemed to be on top of their game, though neither were challenged very much.

With 8:13 left to go in the first frame, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron had one of the best opportunities of the game. Marchand was in the right circle and made a quick pass to Bergeron who was waiting out in front of the net. He tried for the one-timer, but Reimer got a leg pad on it just in time.

The Leafs will start the second period a man down for 12 seconds.
