Red-hot Bergeron puts Bruins on top with power play strike

Interesting news out of Toronto that both Crimson maffia member Dominic Moore and 6-foot-6 Nik Antropov aren’t dressing for the Maple Leafs [1] the night prior to the NHL [2] trade deadline, but tonight is all about the Bruins/Flyers action at the TD Banknorth Garden [3].

There was a quick scrum just minutes into the game between the two hard-nosed hockey clubs, and it didn’t take long for Zdeno Chara [4] to dump Flyers forward Mike Richards [5] to the ground during a quick dump in attempt.

15:15: the B’s had the first power play opportunity and looked sharp on the man advantage, with the B’s almost scoring on a Chuck Kobasew [6] rebound attempt from the slot area.

8:06: Breathtaking save by Antero Nittymaki on a David Krejci [7] forehand attempt from the doorstep. Krejci picked up the puck and tossed it airborne, but Nittymaki was able to snatch the puck out of the air and take away a certain Bruins goal.

5:36: Patrice Bergeron [8] continues to make a second half resurgance, and put the B’s on the board first with a sizzling power play strike from the left faceoff dot from a crisp, one-time pass by Zdeno Chara.

The Bruins are leading the Flyers by 1-0 score through one period of play.
