Bruins lead Lightning, 2-0, after one

Posted By DJ Bean On December 2, 2010 @ 7:46 pm In General | No Comments

It may be Marc Savard [1]‘s season debut, but after a period, the Bruins have another center and a wacky play to thank for their 2-0 lead over the Lightning.

David Krejci [2] took a pass from Milan Lucic [3] at the blue line, flew past a defender and fired a wrist shot past Lightning goaltender Mike Smith at 10:52. It was his third goal of the season and first since Oct. 30. Dennis Seidenberg [4] puked up first goal tally of the season thanks to a lazy shot gone awry from center ice. Smith misplayed the puck to allow the odd goal with 20 seconds left in the period.

Tim Thomas [5] kept up the impressive play that shut out the Flyers a night earlier, as he stopped all 15 of the Lightning’s shots in the first period. He did allow Tampa Bay an opportunity on a big rebound when he was out of position, but Steven Stamkos‘ line was unable to capitalize on it.

Savard got a standing ovation when he took his first shift of the night, and was once again recognized on the jumbotron during a timeout.

Both teams are 0-for-1 on the power play. The Lightning are outshooting the B’s, 15-9.
