Arvid Soderblom made 30 saves and Taylor Hall had an assist before exiting the second period with an upper-body injury for Chicago (1-1-0) . Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson said Hall will perform well every week.
“We didn’t score a lot in the first two periods other than (Bade’s) goal,” Richardson said. “We were a little sloppy and the game today was very unstable. Even in the second quarter until the end, I thought the scoring chances were 3-2. Neither side’s offense made much progress.”
At 5 minutes and 37 seconds into the first quarter, Bedard helped Chicago lead 1-0. He passed the puck to Ryan Donato inside the blue line and received a pass back in the right circle, where he fired a sharp-angle shot past Ullmark. The Bruins goalie saved the shot, but Bedard grabbed the rebound, rounded the net and tucked the puck inside the left post.
Bedard (18 years, 86 days) is the third youngest player in Blackhawks history to score his first NHL goal, behind Grant Mulvey (18 years, 32 days, October 19, 1974) and Eddie Olczyk (18 years, 56 days, October 19, 1974). October 11, 1984).
At 11 minutes and 22 seconds into the first quarter, Frederic took a shot from Brandon Carlo and tied the score at 1-1. Matthew Poitras made his NHL debut with a second assist in this game.
“(Carlo) always asks for tips, and I think I tipped him a little bit last year,” Frederick said. “They didn’t all make it, but he was definitely good at shooting it. … He played well.”
At 13 minutes and 09 seconds of the second quarter, Pastrnak helped the Bruins lead 2-1. Milan Lucic passed a backhand pass to Pastrnak in the left faceoff circle, and his shot passed through Soderblom’s glove.
