Zdeno Chara's absence proved to be costly early in the first period as the Montreal Canadiens netted two quick goals, ultimately taking a 2-0 lead into the locker room after one period in Game 2 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoff quarterfinals.
Mike Cammalleri netted the game's first goal a mere 43 seconds into the period after the Bruins coughed up the puck in the neutral zone. Mathieu Darche potted the second goal of the period 2:20 into the first period.
Carey Price continued his streak of dominance, turning away 15 shots. Tim Thomas had six saves in the opening period for Boston.
