The crowd cheered for what they thought was a Bruins goal, but by periods’ end it was only an ex-Bruin who had scored, and the B’s trail the Blues 1-0.
Vladimir Sobotka, traded to the Blues for David Warsofsky during the draft, picked up his first goal of the season late in the first period. Matt Hunwick was in a tough spot, trying to account for Sobotka and Alexander Steen. When poking the puck from Steen was just out of reach for Hunwick, Steen sent it to Sobotka, who had plenty of time to beat Rask.
Nathan Horton seemed to have his seventh of the year when he beat Halak low from the bottom of the circle at a tough angle, but the play was ruled no goal, The play was reviewed, with it being determined that the puck hit the post and never crossed the goal line.
The Bruins took a page out Friday’s book in the first period. After mustering just nine shots through the first two periods on Friday, the Bruins put only six shots on Blues netminder Jaroslav Halak. Rask stopped 12 of the 13 shots he faced, and aside from a couple of juicy rebounds looked good.
