Chalk it up as advantage, bad guys.
At 18:14 into the first period, the Boston Bruins found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard as Chicago Blackhawks center Ryan Carpenter found the back of the net on a rebound.
To make matters worse, it was the Bruins who found themselves on the powerplay, but the Blackhawks took advantage despite being down a man to score the first goal of the night.
