The Bruins fell victim to an officiating error in the first period, and it shows on the scoreboard as the Rangers hold a 1-0 lead at the first intermission.
Marian Gaborik had to reach back for the puck after entering the offensive zone with about six and a half minutes into the game. When no off-sides call was made, Michael Sauer fired a shot from the point off the following face-off that forward Derek Stepan would redirect past Tuukka Rask  at 6:39.
The Bruins weren’t able to respond in short order, as Tyler Seguin  was called for interference just over two minutes later. The period featured one fight, with Gregory Campbell  dropping the gloves with Sean Avery  at 2:44.
After one, the Rangers hold a 9-8 advantage in shots on goal.
