Given how low-scoring the Bruins and Maple Leafs' meetings have been this season, it was unlikely that there would be three first-period goals Saturday. It was even more unlikely that players who rarely score would produce the goals, but all of that came to be as the Maple Leafs lead the B's, 2-1, after one. Luke Schenn scored his fourth goal of the season when he skated the puck all the way from the Toronto Blue line, going around Adam McQuaid and beating Tim Thomas glove side at 9:44. Not to be outdone, Adam McQuaid saw to at that Schenn wouldn't be the only surprise name on the scoring sheet when he fired a puck off Dion Phaneuf's skate and past James Reimer. Forty seconds later, Nazem Kadri scored his first career goal when Tim Thomas didn't seem to ever see the wrist shot from the point. Michael Ryder gave the Leafs their first power play of the night when he sent the puck into the stands from the Bruins' zone for a delay of game penalty at 6:41. The Maple Leafs failed to convert, while the B's did not have a power play in the period. The Bruins are outshooting the Maple Leafs, 11-9.
