Two squads exchange ringing posts. Zalewski at Boston end at 11:18. Pouliot at Devils end at 11:30.

Halfway through P2. Seidenberg gets rare shot through from high above RW circle. Brodeur holds. NJ wtih 19-11 shot lead. Bruins with little action.

6:25 gone. NJ still with 1-0 lead and now with 17-8 shot lead.

Underway again at Rock.

First 20:00 a wrap. Devs, 1-0, on strength of 10-6 shot lead. Bruins with minimal presence in attack zone.

18:29 -- Devils, 1-0. Sykora quick forehand pop from slot after Zubrus wins 1/1 battle vs. Seidenberg behind net. Six seconds after faceoff to Thomas' right.

Finally, some fog on the mirror here. Mills and Campbell fight. Thought it would be Thornton and Janssen, who lined up for same faceoff at 14:31.

Still 0-0 with 5:32 to go in first.

7:18 -- Horton misfires high with 20-footer from slot, set up by Krjeci feed.

6:48 gone, still no score. Bruins look more likes selves with return of Marchand, Peverley.

Great chance by Kelly at 4:22, but Brodeur turns back his doorstep backhander--feed off right side by Peverley. No. 1 shot of game.

Squirrely start for Bruins. Horton sent off for tripping Kovalchuk at 1:18.

Less than 15 minutes to go before puckdrop, Bruins vs. Devils at the Rock.

Tim Thomas back in net for the Bruins.

Scratches: Jordan Caron, Zach Hamill and Steven Kampfer.

Coach Claude Julien will open with the Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin trio
