NESN.com staff will pick the two or three best Amica Coverage Plays of the previous week for games played from Friday night to Thursday night. Voting will begin every Friday morning and conclude on Monday. 

Some of the best plays in hockey don’t show up on the scoresheet.

Using the Amica Coverage Cam, NESN’s Billy Jaffe broke down some of the under-the-radar defensive play that helped the Bruins hold Tampa Bay scoreless through one period in Thursday night’s season opener.

Check out the video above to see how the B’s used layered defense to keep the puck out of the net in the first.
