Logan Couture has Sharks leading Bruins, 1-0

Though veteran Joe Thornton [1] is the headline grabber when the Sharks are in town, it is a rookie who has the Sharks leading the Bruins, 1-0, after one.

The Bruins took a too many men on the ice penalty at 5:37. The penalty was solid in the early going, with Patrice Bergeron [2] and Mark Recchi [3] getting shorthanded opportunities for the B’s. Logan Couture ended up making the only noise that counted, sending a back-hander past Tim Thomas [4] with 15 seconds remaining on the power play. The rookie now has 23 goals on the season.

Adam McQuaid fought Ben Eager at 17:53, with Eager getting the better of McQuaid in the bought. The B’s ended up on the power play as a Eager was also assessed a roughing minor. The Bruins were 0-for-2 on the power play.

After a period, the Bruins are outshooting the Sharks, 8-5.
