Rich Peverley Goal Gives Boston 1-0 In Game 4 Of 2011 Stanley Cup Finals

The Boston Bruins take a 1-0 lead into the locker room after the first period of the game on the strength of a Rich Peverley goal at the 12-minute mark. His third goal of the playoffs went through Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo's five-hole.

But that was one of the few shots Boston was able to get on net. Michael Ryder had a nice shot get past Luongo with 52 second left in the period, but the puck banked off the goalpost and back into play. The Bruins have six shots after one period.

The Canucks, meanwhile, had several furious attempts on net to reach 12 shots on Tim Thomas, but Thomas didn't let any get past him. He's been able to find the right place at the right time to come up with the save, redirect the puck. The Bruins will need Thomas to keep up this level of play if they can't put more pucks on net.
