Scoreless after one period of play

The Montreal Canadiens came out like a house of hockey fire in the first period, but Tim Thomas and unsinkable B’s defense — featuring a big helping of the Providence Baby B’s roster — managed to hold on for a scoreless tie through a choppy first period of play. Thomas made 17 saves through the first 20 minutes of play that also featured a fight between Mark Stuart and Kyle Chipchura. The score is 0-0 after one period before a packed house of chanting and impassioned Habs and Bruins fans.
Here’s the fight with a clear decision for Stuart:
