    Quick Bruins notes:

    • This will be the 41st playoff meeting, and eighth series, between these two teams. Boston holds a 21-19 lifetime record and the 140-132 scoring edge.
    • In their previous seven playoff rounds against Buffalo, the Bruins have lost the first game of the series four times — but won three of those four series.
    • The 24 shots in the second period of Game 1 was the second-highest in Bruins playoff history. The record is 26 shots in the second period against the Canadiens on Apr. 22, 1969.
      During the regular season, the Bruins were seventh in the NHL in shots on goal, yet last in goals-for. Quite indicative of their play in Game 1. The B’s put 39 shots on Miller with just one finding the back of the net.
    • The Bruins can turn this series around and bring it back to even heading back to Boston for Monday’s Game 3 — playing a full 60-minutes, remaining physical, and letting their shots go (with some screens/traffic) on Miller will be just a few keys to victory for the Black-and-Gold.
    • Expect the same lineup as Thursday night:




    Team leaders:

    Goals: Mark Recchi (1)
    Assists: Zdeno Chara (1), Matt Hunwick (1)
    Shots on goal: Chara (6), Johnny Boychuk (5) Miro Satan (5), Blake wheeler (5)
    Penalty Minutes: Chara (6)
    Hits: Steve Begin (5)
    Time on Ice: Chara (27:07)
    Blocked Shots: Boychuk (3), Adam McQuaid (3), Dennis Wideman (3)
    Face-offs: Patrice Bergeron 12-for-20 (60%)
