Game 1: Bruins lose 5-1 to Hurricanes due to missed scoring chances.
The Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Boston Bruins 5-1 on Monday night in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.
Raanta made 35 saves in his first postseason start, with Frederik Andersen out injured.
To break a scoreless tie in the second period, Jarvis and Niederreiter scored roughly two minutes apart.
Carolina never gave up the lead. Teravainen and Trocheck scored third-period goals to help Carolina maintain and then extend its lead in this best-of-seven series opener.
Andrei Svechnikov scored an empty-net goal at 17:59 to cap a dominant third period against a team that had previously eliminated Carolina from the playoffs.
Taylor Hall scored for Boston early in the third on a feed from Erik Haula after a tussle behind the net.
Minutes later, he smacked the left post. Raanta made the routine glove stops as well as the more impressive diving saves or post-to-post slides.
