Krejci got it started late in the sluggish first period that didn’t produce much of anything until the final two minutes. Milan Lucic, who was serenaded by the Bruins faithful with loud chants of “Loooch!” every time he touched the puck, sent a backhanded pass from behind the Islanders net into the lower portion of the right circle.
