Looking for the moment the Bruins took control of this game? It came when Milan Lucic annihilated Carolina's Dennis Seidenberg in the corner to the left of the Hurricanes' net late in the first period. The crushing blow brought the Garden crowd to its loudest level of the night, to that point, and it only escalated from there when both Mark Recchi and Phil Kessel scored goals for a 2-0 Bruins advantage at the end of one period.
