Sam Bennett, Flames Turn Bruins’ Quality Chance Into First Goal Of Game


The first goal of Friday night’s game between the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames was quite the highlight.

The Bruins appeared to have something going in the offensive zone, but the Flames managed to collect the puck and head in the other direction. After a few passes, Sam Bennett got the puck and beat Boston goalie Anton Khudobin short high side over the blocker, giving Calgary a 1-0 lead at the 8:36 mark in the first period at TD Garden.
