Bruins, Hurricanes scoreless after one

The Bruins and Hurricanes are scoreless after a period, with the B’s outshooting Carolina, 15-10.

The Bruins were shorthanded twice in the period, with Daniel Paille [1] and Michael Ryder [2] going off for hooking and interference, respectively. Neither Hurricanes power plays yielded goals, though Paille had a breakaway opportunity for the Bruins when he hopped out of the box. Tim Thomas [3] made some big saves, and even went without his mask for a few seconds, on the first penalty kill.

Milan Lucic [4] and Jay Harrison dropped the gloves briefly, though the fight yielded very few punches before beanbag broken up.

with Lucic in the box, Claude Julien [5] went with tweaked lines, and a line of Wheeler-Campbell-Thornton would have produced the game’s first goal were it not for Cam Ward [6] robbing Blake Wheeler [7] in front.

The period ended with a bang, as Steven Kampfer crushed fellow rookie Jeff Skinner accepted a pass coming into the Bruins’ zone.
