Stretch Pass, Net-Front Screen Paved Way To Bruins’ First-Period Goal

David Krejci put the Boston Bruins on the board in the first period against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Krejci’s ninth goal of the season started with a stretch pass out of Boston’s defensive zone from Zdeno Chara. After Sean Kuraly corralled the puck by the half boards and found Krejci in the slot, Chris Wagner went to the front of the net. Wagner’s moving screen was just enough to give Krejci the opening he needed, sending a blast past Leafs goaltender Michael Hutchinson.
