As the initial phase of the contest between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins was reaching its conclusion, the intensity heightened on the ice, with Ryan Reaves getting involved.

Maple Leafs players Ryan Reaves and Simon Benoit were seeking out Bruins competitors, aiming to assert their influence. Benoit administered a robust hit to Bruins player Pastrnak as he entered the zone, catching him off guard and executing a substantial body check.

Not long after, Pavel Zacha was pursuing a stray puck when Ryan Reaves unexpectedly collided with him, contributing further to the game's physical nature.

Despite the assertive performance from the Maple Leafs, the Bruins gradually regained their momentum as the period progressed. They created several promising chances in the offensive zone but failed to convert them into goals.

As the initial period concluded, the score remains 0-0, paving the way for a gripping second period. Despite the absence of goals, the Bruins currently lead in hits with a tally of 32-28, underscoring their physical dominance on the rink.

Entering the second period, both teams aim to seize momentum and break the stalemate as they persist in their on-ice confrontation.
