Hurricanes lead Bruins, 1-0, after one

After a botched play in the neutral zone while shorthanded and a Daniel Paille [1] turnover, the Hurricanes had no difficulty regaining possession and setting up Jeff Skinner’s seventh goal of the season, to make it 1-0 after a period of play.

Skinner was chosen seventh overall in June’s draft and leads all rookies in scoring.

Nathan Horton [2] had perhaps the best scoring opportunity of the period, as he gathered a Zdeno Chara [3] shot off the boards, but was unable to put it past Ward, who was caught out of position. The Hurricanes goaltender came up big on a number of other plays, notably a high blast from Andrew Ference [4] through traffic and stops on point-blank wristers from Milan Lucic [5] and Michael Ryder [6].

Tim Thomas [7] wasn’t quite as busy, as he saw only six shots in the period. The goal came with 15.8 seconds left in the period, and in the midst of a power play caused by a Blake Wheeler [8] holding call. The B’s put 12 on Ward.
