The Bruins took a 1-0 lead in the first period, and all it took was 19:59.9 for them to grab it.

The Bruins’ energy line carried the load in the period, with Shawn Thornton capping the period with his 10th goal of the season. The B’s went on a two-man advantage at 7:03 thanks to penalties drawn by Daniel Paille and Thornton. Paille, who got the primary helper on Thornton’s goal, has had a couple of great chances, though former BU goalie Rick DiPietro has come up big for the Islanders.

In the Bruins’ end, Tim Thomas is making the necessary stops (14 in total). He came up with a big save after Brad Marchand made a bad turnover with a pass in front of his own net.
