First period summary: Bruins-Maple Leafs

Posted By Mike Petraglia On March 4, 2010 @ 7:51 pm In General | No Comments

The game is tied 1-1 after 20 minutes with the Bruins holding a 9-8 shots lead.

The Bruins again came out with good energy in the first period and appeared to grab the lead 63 seconds into the game when Steve Begin came around the net behind J-S Giguere and centered a pass that went off Michael Ryder’s left skate.

After a review by the booth, it was deemed that Ryder kicked the puck into the net and the goal was disallowed..

But the Bruins kept up the pace and finally were rewarded when Miroslav Satan snapped a wrister from the left circle and beat Giguere five-hole at 9:36.

The Bruins kept up the intensity with fights just seconds apart as Milan Lucic [1] battled Colton Orr and Shawn Thornton [2] went at it with Wayne Primeau.

The Leafs regained some momentum when Viktor Stalberg beat Tim Thomas [3] to the short side with just under five minutes left..

Thomas, who hasn’t started a game of any kind since Feb. 2 against Washington, redeemed himself big-time when he stoned Phil Kessel [4] in the final 30 seconds of the period on a rush up the right boards.
