Second set in books. Bruins holding one-goal lead.

11:32 -- Bruins 3, Caps 2 -- Kundratek wrists home shot from top of right wing circle, seconds after faceoff. Bruins game in a sort of ice cream freeze.

Thornton, Erskine in respective sin bins as period begins.

FIRST PERIOD

First period in books. Bruins, 3-0. Autopilot.

18:30 -- Bruins 3, Caps 0 -- Hamilton drills in half-slapper from slot point. Two nice backhand relasy, Krejci to Horton, then Horton to Hamilton, set up the strike.

17:09 -- Thornton fights Erskine. Both go to room with little time left in period. Erskine opens bout with two heavy rights to Thornton's squash. Not good for a guy recovering from concussion.

17:07 -- Bruins 2, Caps 1 -- Chara snaps off wrister at top of right wing faceoff circle. Shot nails Krejci at front of net. Chara follows up, pots own loose puck under Holtby's left pad.

11:00 gone here in first. Boston up, 1-0. Caps with 4-3 shot lead.

6:29 -- Bruins 1, Caps 0 -- Marchand scores on penalty shot for 12th goal of season. Was hooked on breakaway by Ovechkin while killing penalty. LIttle Ball o' Hate stuffs forehander through Holtby's five-hole.

Puck down. Underway.

Chris Bourque makes his way back into Boston's lineup tonight. Was a scratch Sunday night vs. Habs. Jay Pandolfo gets night off here.

About ready to start here at the Verizon Center in downtown DC.
