Senators Vs. Rangers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 3: Scoreless Through 1st Period

The New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators are tied up at 0-0 through the first period of Monday night's Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series game of the 2012 NHL Playoffs. The two teams stuck to playing hockey for the most part, especially when compared to Saturday's fight night. Unfortunately, so far it appears the offensive fireworks went out with the hot tempers.

There was one kerfuffle with 5:39 left in the period that took place around the Senators net. Events didn't escalate to an overly disruptive level, however. Brian Boyle and Jason Spezza were both booked for roughing one another, but Brandon Prust was also charged to give the Senators a powerplay.

Chris Kreider played well, joining the lineup in place of the suspended Carl Hagelin. He logged just over four minutes on the ice, but didn't make much of an impact on the stat sheet. The Senators lead with 12 shots on goal to eight for the Rangers, but have also given away the puck six times to zero.
