Hunwick sniper shot puts Bruins up on the board

6:35: Both goaltenders look sharp early with local boy done good Jonathan Quick  representing UMass hockey well between the pipes for the Kings. Quick just made a great sprawling glove save on a Blake Wheeler  breakaway. Big Wheels came bombing straight down the slot without a defender in sight after a great takeaway and dish from Marc Savard . Wheeler made a few “quick hands” moves with the stick and then attempted to tuck a forehand inside the right post. Quick stayed strong to the pipe, however, and stopped the puck’s momentum until the whistle blew. Great save.
Tonight also marks the fifth start in a row for Tim Thomas  dating back to the Manny Fernandez  MSG meltdown against the New York Rangers  on March 8. It’s a good bet that Man-Fern could do one of those “Not going anywhere for a while” commercials from the Bruins bench.
5:18: Matt Hunwick has certainly made an impression after being scratched the last few games. He was in the box for a hook in the first few minutes and then just put the B’s on the board with a snipe from the slot. Michael Ryder  fed Hunwick a perfect pass from behind the net, and Hunny rushed in from his D-man spot and went to a knee while blasting away from the slot. Every Bruins player touched the puck on the play in a nice display of puck movement.
The B’s have a 1-0 lead over the Kings after one period of play at the TD Banknorth Garden .
