Good Puck Possession Sets Up Jarome Iginla’s First-Period Goal Against Oilers (Video)

The Bruins took a 2-0 lead in the first period of Thursday’s game against the Oilers with strong puck possession in the attacking zone and a good screen by Milan Lucic in front of Edmonton goaltender Devan Dubnyk.

The B’s did a tremendous job of using the boards to protect the puck and maintain possession while they worked the puck below the goal line, which helped Jarome Iginla receive a pass in the right face-off circle and fire a shot toward the net. With Dubnyk unable to see the in front of him with Lucic standing at the edge of the crease, the puck found its way into the net.
