Bruins and Devils scoreless after one

Posted By DJ Bean On October 16, 2010 @ 7:40 pm In General | No Comments

The Bruins and Devils both treaded water in the first period of what one would expect to be a low-shooting and low-scoring game. As such, the shots are 11-8 in favor of the Devils in a scoreless game.

The Devils were comically clumsy in the offensive zone, but that’s not to say that they didn’t have their chances. Tim Thomas [1] twice had to make sprawling savesĀ reminiscentĀ of his Vezina days to keep it scoreless.

The Bruins took three penalties in the period, with Blake Wheeler [2] (holding) and Brad Marchand [3] (kneeing) penalties overlapping for a period-ending 5-on-3. Marchand was called for a questionable knee-on-knee hit on Dainius Zubrus. The Bruins went 0-for-1 on the power play, with a Tyler Seguin [4] wrister off the glove of Martin Brodeur [5] perhaps the closest they came to getting on the board.

David Krejci [6] and Michael Ryder [7] had two goals apiece in the first period, with Andrew Ference [8] batting at a floating rebound from a Krejci shot and unable to make solid contact.
