Boston Globe coverage of the game

Francois Beauchemin's shot from the point glanced off the stick of Bruin David Krejci and past goalie Tim Thomas at 13:35 of the third period, giving the Anaheim Ducks a 2-1 win last night.

Krejci lost a defensive-zone draw to center Ryan Getzlaf, who pulled the puck back to Shane Hnidy. The defenseman, positioned along the left wall, fed the puck to Beauchemin for the quick shot.

For the first 20 minutes, the Bruins held their own.

But in the second period, Anaheim showed why it won the Stanley Cup last season, an achievement that was recognized in a pregame ceremony.

The Ducks, down by a goal after the first period, flexed their muscles and played their rough style of hockey, scoring the tying strike in the second. The teams were tied, 1-1, after 40 minutes.

The Ducks tied the game in the second period after a monstrous shift by Getzlaf. He kicked things off by stapling Zdeno Chara to the end boards, dropping the Bruins' captain. The two collided later in the shift, with Chara getting the better of Getzlaf.

But Getzlaf won the battle, slipping behind Chara and putting himself in position to pounce on the rebound of defenseman Kent Huskins's point shot. Getzlaf crashed the net and jammed the puck past Thomas at 10:52. It was one of 15 second-period shots for the Ducks.
