Bruins lead Islanders after one

The Bruins lead the Islanders, 1-0, after a period thanks to Nathan Horton’s 20th goal of the season.

Horton beat Al Montoya by kicking a rebound off a Milan Lucic [1] shot back to himself and firing it in. He now has goals in two straight games and six goals in his last 10.

The Bruins went 0-for-2 on the power play, failing to take advantage of penalties to Justin DiBenedetto and Kyle Okposo. Matt Bartkowski was the only Bruin sent to the sin bin, and a sprawling Tim Thomas [2] came up big for the B’s by stopping an onslaught with Boston shorthanded.

The Islanders outshot the Bruins, 11-8, in the period.
