No scoring after 20 minutes
We're through one period in Boston, with neither team able to put the puck in the net.

But it wasn't for want of opportunities. Montreal had some excellent chances among its 10 shots, though the best one – a wide-open shot by Tomas Plekanec that was foiled by forward Michael Ryder – doesn't count in that figure. The Bruins had 12, including a great opportunity by slump-ridden Milan Lucic in the final minutes.

No player on either team had more than two shots as we saw the first scoreless opening period in the series.
Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
