Bruins, Penguins scoreless after one

The Bruins and Penguins [1] remain scoreless after the first period, with Pittsburgh outshooting the B’s, 14-9.

The Bruins’ lone power play of period came at 13:08, when Ben Lovejoy went off for holding. The B’s failed to convert and are now 1-for-17 on the power play since acquiring Tomas Kaberle [2].

The period also featured fisticuffs, as Michael Rupp appeared victorious in a bout with Shawn Thornton [3] at 2:59. Later in the period, Nathan Horton [4] beat down Craig Adams when the two got into it at 18:31.

Nathan Horton had a couple of close-range opportunities on Marc-Andre Fleury [5] but was stopped by the goaltender on one and saw his shot get blocked a Penguins skate on the other. Michael Ryder [6] also had a great opportunity on Fleury but held the puck too long in an attempt to deke the Penguins’ goaltender.
