Chris Kunitz goal has Penguins leading Bruins after one

The Penguins [1] don’t have Sidney Crosby [2], but they do have a 1-0 lead after a period at TD Garden.

Jordan Staal took a pass from Matt Cooke [3], and with Tuukka Rask’s attention on Staal, the former second overall pick sent a pass to Chris Kunitz in front of the net. The puck went off Kunitz’ skate and into the net, with a review of the play showing there wasn’t a kicking motion and that Kunitz had fanned on a shot.

The Penguins’ goal came shortly after Cooke got out of the box for an interference call. Cooke was sent off after barreling into a puck-less Adam McQuaid in front of the B’s net.

Gregory Campbell [4] and Craig Adams provided the fisticuffs for the period, dropping the gloves at 15:10. Once Campbell got his right hand free, the B’s center landed several rights in succession.

The teams each have 12 shots on goal.
