Arniel Scores in OT, Boston Downs Leafs, 6-5
Kitchener, Ontario -- Center Zach Hamill had four points, including an assist on Jamie Arniel's game winning goal in overtime, as the Boston Bruins rookies defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs rookies, 6-5, in front of 2553 in the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium.

Hamill, the B's first round pick in 2007 who is currently serving as captain of the young Bruins during a season-opening rookie tournament, intercepted an errant puck in the neutral zone to start a give-and-go, which Arniel finnished when the forward beat Toronto goaltender James Reimer (30-saves).

Arniel's goal, his second of the game, gave Boston goalie Adam Courchaine the win (34-saves) and the Bruins a victory in their first game action of the preseason and their first contest in the tournament hosted by Toronto.

The game's 11 goals were only the tip of the iceberg for the Aud's spectators, as the teams combined on 75 shots and three fights.

Boston next plays the Ottawa Senators rookies on Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m.
