The Bruins spent much of the first period trying to keep up with the tempo of the Lightning, but after one the two teams are scoreless.
Tuukka Rask  has faced 11 shots, saving them all. The B’s limited Steven Stamkos to one shot on Rask, though Martin St. Louis got three on the netminder.
The Bruins have just seven shots on Mike Smith. Tyler Seguin  and Shawn Thornton  lead the B’s with two. Thornton had the game’s only penalty thus far when he got the gate for interference at 17:55 of the period.
