Bruins Vs. Rangers Score Update: Lots Of Hard Hits, But Still 0-0 After First

After the first 20 minutes of play, the game has been everything either team could expect--lots of hard hitting and good opportunities by both teams, despite the 0-0 score.

The Bruins came out early in the first couple of minutes and put an onslaught on Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Though they didn't convert on any of the opportunities, it set the mood for the remainder of the period.

The B's managed to stay out of the penalty box for the period, whereas New York was called for penalties three different times. However, having the third best penalty kill in the league has its perks and they kept Boston without a shot throughout the first two.

The first came 5:46 into the period when David Krejci was thrown to the ground behind Henrik Lundqvist and Brandon Dubinsky got called for roughing. Also, Marion Gaborik and Ryan Callahan were called for tripping--the latter one with 39 seconds to go in the period.

The B's will start the second period on the man advantage and look to see if they can add some numbers on the board.
