Maple Leafs lead Bruins after one

Posted By DJ Bean On March 31, 2011 @ 7:44 pm In General | No Comments

The Maple Leafs came into Boston desperate for a win, and they lead the Bruins 1-0 thanks to some help from a former friend.

The Leafs got on the board when a shot bounced off Tomas Kaberle [1] and past Tim Thomas [2] at 7:06. Luke Schenn was credited with the goal, which ended Thomas’ shutout streak at 1:22:21.

As far as the sin bin went, stick penalties by rookies plagued the Bruins. Six seconds after Tyler Seguin [3] was out of the box for hooking, Steven Kampfer took the same penalty. Extracurricular activity at 4:00 left Phil Kessel [4] with minors for slashing and roughing, while Andrew Ference [5] went off for slashing. Seguin would make up for his earlier penalty by drawing a hook from NIkolai Kulemin. The B’s will begin the second period with five seconds remaining on the power play.

After one, the Leafs are outshooting the B’s, 10-8.
