Bergeron puts Bruins up by one after one

2:02: After a first period that should have you jacked and pumped for the Stanley Cup [1] playoffs unless you’re heart has stopped beating, the B’s draw first blood with a Patrice Bergeron [2] goal right in front. The Bergeron score was the end of some tic-tac passing with Mark Recchi [3] flipping it cross-ice to Matt Hunwick bombing down the right side. Hunwick picked his head up and found Bergeorn all alone at the right post, and fed a sweet tape-to-tape pass for the tap-in. Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges cross-checked Bergeron from behind after the puck was in the net, and set off an extended pushing and shoving scrum.

0:00: All heck broke loose at the end of the first period as Mike Komisarek, who has been active all period, went in after David Krejci [4] in the corner. The two pushed and shoved, and then Zdeno Chara [5] arrived and started throwing elbows and jobs at Komisarek. The entanglement started a team-wide donnybrook in the corner, and both Chara and Komisarek were whistled off for penalties. Komisarek was hit with a two-minute penalty (roughing) and Chara got four minutes (double minor for roughing) after coming in late to stand up for Krejci.

The Bruins are leading the Canadiens by a 1-o score after one full period at the TD Banknorth Garden [6].
