40 minutes, no goals
We're through two periods in Boston, with just as many goals on the scoreboard as there were at the opening faceoff – none.

The physical play is ratcheting up as the time goes on – think of jacks-or-better poker when no one can open for a few hands. Boston's Brad Marchand had a chance with just under a minute to play in the second when he slid past the defense but couldn't jam the puck under Carey Price's pads. The ensuing scrum featured the site of super-sized defenseman Hal Gill of Montreal exchanging shoves with munchkin-like forward Mark Recchi of Boston.

The Bruins outshot Montreal 9-6 in the second period and own a 21-16 margin through 40 minutes. But where it matters most, neither team has been able to get rid of the "0" next to its name.
Quote of the Day

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
