Bruins 0, Islanders 0, End 1st

The Bruins were outshot, if not outplayed, in the opening 20 minutes as the Islanders peppered Tuukka Rask [1] with 16 shots while the B’s could only get off seven shots on Dwayne Roloson.

The Islanders were aided by a 5-on-3 for a minute, 38 seconds. But Rask, making his first start of the season, looked up to the challenge and didn’t allow many second chances.

The Bruins were 11-for-21 in face-offs for a 52 percent win rate.
