Officiating blunder costs Bruins in first period

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 [1] at 6:39.

The Bruins weren’t able to respond in short order, as Tyler Seguin [2] was called for interference just over two minutes later. The period featured one fight, with Gregory Campbell [3] dropping the gloves with Sean Avery [4] at 2:44.

After one, the Rangers hold a 9-8 advantage in shots on goal.
