Ryan Smyth has the Kings leading the Bruins after a period of play Monday night. With Zdeno Chara in the box for hooking, Jarret Stoll fired a one-timer from the point off a pass from Drew Doughty. Smyth whacked at the bouncing rebound and sent it over the stick of a lunging Tim Thomas. Shawn Thornton tried to swing the momentum in the Bruins' favor when he dropped the gloves with Kyle Clifford. It seemed that Clifford got the better of Thornton in the fight, and a few minutes later Blake Wheeler went off for holding the stick at 17:31. The Kings went 1-for-2 on the man advantage, while the Bruins did not have a power play in the period. Michael Ryder, skating on a line with Tyler Seguin and Blake Wheeler, is leading the B's with three shots on goal in the first. The Kings are outshooting the Bruins, 13-11.
