The Boston Bruins’ first-period goals would not have been possible without strong forechecking.
The B’s second line established the forecheck early and created plenty of scoring chances off it. The Bruins forced the Toronto Maple Leafs to move the puck around the boards in the first period, and Zdeno Chara was able to take the puck away and send it in deep.
Brad Marchand finished off the nice play, lighting the lamp for the B’s early in the first period.
