Gameday Blog: Bruins vs. Jets

SECOND INTERMISSION

SCORE
BOS – 0
WPG – 1

SHOTS
BOS – 27
WPG – 21

Unless the Bruins can tally in the third period, the Bruins point streak may be nearing its end.

Winnipeg still leads 1-0 through forty minutes of play, but it wasn’t from a lack of effort or chances for Boston.

The B’s peppered Ondrej Pavelec with 17 shots in the middle frame, including an impressive total of six during an early power play.

Boston’s charge was led largely by the first line trio of Krejci, Lucic and Horton, who did everything but score in the period.

Krejci had Boston’s best opportunity of the frame, but Pavelec was able to shift from right to left and stop a shot the Czech center undoubtedly wanted to elevate a bit more.

Twenty minutes are in the books at MTS Centre where the Jets lead the B’s 1-0.

It took until the 18:21 mark for either team to get on the board. Andrew Ladd beat Tuukka Rask with a top-shelf snap shot that Tuukka Rask seemed to be off his angle on.

For Ladd, the goal put a four-game point drought to bed. Former Devil Johnny Oduya and goaltender Ondrej Pavelec picked up the assists.

The opening period was a rough one for David Krejci. The B’s first-line center won just 1-of-6 (17%) at the dot and was on the ice for Winnipeg’s tally.

The Jets did a solid job of blocked shots in the opening frame. Oduya and former Bruin Mark Stuart each had two apiece.

The only power-play opportunity of the game thus far has gone to Boston. Jim Slater was sent to the box for slashing at the 3:40 mark.

However, the biggest news of the night stemmed from events earlier in the morning. Tyler Seguin missed a team breakfast and was scratched for the contest.
