BOSTON — It took awhile for Milan Lucic to get on the scoresheet, but the 30-goal scorer finally got his first goal of the playoffs in the Bruins’ 11th tilt this postseason. His power play tally at 12:02 gives the Bruins a 1-0 lead after oneWhile the .
- While the Bruins’ last power play of the period looked similar to the ones they’ve had throughout the postseason, their previous two looked solid. They moved the puck around, got the Flyers defense off balance, and as a result, Lucic was rewarded with his first of the playoffs. The Bruins are now 2-for-33 with the man advantage this postseason.
- There’s many reasons why Sergei Bobrovsky should have been between the pipes earlier in this series and tonight is living proof. The rookie goaltender made 12 saves in the first, limited his rebounds and cut down angles well. He is clearly keeping his team in it.
- Zdeno Chara’s K.O. of Scott Hartnell late in the first proved that the Bruins aren’t taking the Flyers’ antics. Hartnell was getting a couple of shots in on Tim Thomas after the whistle, and the captain took exception. There’s a reason why you don’t want to get a 6-foot-9 defenseman angry, but he’ll be serving the rest of his double minor (3:53) for roughing to begin the second.
- The Bruins are 11-7 in the faceoff circle, and Flyers captain Mike Richards is 0-6 from the dot.
