The Bruins and Blackhawks skated to a scoreless first period at TD Garden, but both teams have come out with energy Tuesday night.

The Bruins had scoring opportunities from Brad Marchand [1], who was stopped by Corey Crawford, as well as the third line. There was only one penalty in the period, as Milan Lucic [2] went off for holding.

The Bruins are playing a responsible defensive game thus far, as they have done a good job of getting back and have cleared out the loose pucks in front of Tim Thomas [3]. As a result, the Blackhawks have only five shots on goal. The B’s had 12 in the first.
