Bruins and Lightning tied at 2-2 after one period

TAMPA, Fl. — Andrew Ference [1] banged in his first power play score of the season — and his first goal of any kind this season – as the newest left-handed shot to try out for that all-important fifth spot along the right side boards on Boston’s top power play. The Ference goal came off a great cross-ice pass from Marc Savard [2] at the left point as he waited for the puck on the sideboards and lifted a shot past Tampa goaltender Karri Ramo.

The Ference tied things up at 2-2 after one full period of play, and finished an eventful first 20 minutes of play that featured a boatload of Grade A chances and a pair of fights: Shawn Thornton [3] and David Koci in the undercard and Mark Stuart [4] and Gary Roberts in a pretty good bout toward the end of the first.

The two fights marked Boston’s first dropping of the gloves in their last nine games.
