Avalanche Vs. Bruins Update: Colorado Outshoots Boston In 1st Period, But Tied At Zero

The Colorado Avalanche and the Boston Bruins are in a 0-0 tie after the first period of play on Columbus Day. The Avalanche outshot the Bruins in the first period, 13-9, but failed to take advantage of the power play. The Avalanche had three man-advantages and had a 5-on-3 opportunity for 27 seconds. However, Tuukka Rask and the Bruins didn't let one slip in to the back of the net.

Rask stopped all 13 shots he faced while Semyon Varlamov saved nine shots in the first period. Matt Duchene had three shots on net, but Paul Stastny's backhander in front of the net was the team's best opportunity to score in the period.

The Avalanche will need to start winning more faceoffs, as Boston has a commanding 9-5 lead. Can the Avs finally score their first goal of the season in the second period?
