First period summary: Bruins-Islanders

Posted By DJ Bean On March 6, 2010 @ 2:50 pm In General | No Comments

The Bruins seem to have gotten a shot of energy with the return of Patrice Bergeron [1], and Islanders netminder Dwayne Roloson is taking the brunt of it.

After dominating offensively in a period in which they would outshoot the Islanders by a margin of 16-4, Milan Lucic [2] took a feed from Shawn Thornton [3] of a Dennis Wideman [4] shot and beat Dwayne Roloson from the top of the circle at 18:26. It was the period’s only goal, but minutes earlier the Islanders came close.

With just over seven minutes remaining, an Islanders shot from the point led to a sprawling Tim Thomas [5] giving up a juicy rebound for winger Matt Moulson. Daniel Seidenberg came to the rescue and cleared it out to prevent the Islanders from taking the lead.

Aside from the¬†aforementioned¬†bid, it was a pretty uneventful affair around Thomas’ net, though the Islanders did increase their offensive output in the second half of the period.

Jon Sim went off for tripping at 1:27, the only penalty of the game thus far.
