A nice way to end the weekend!

Any weekend where you win two games in 24 hours is a good weekend.

To the highlights!

Some sloppy coverage leads to an Ottawa 2-on-1, and Colin White fed Mark Stone with a perfect pass. He didn’t miss. 1-0 Ottawa.

A bounce went the Bruins way in the second, as Brad Marchand found himself in the right place at the right time on the power play. 1-1 tie.

The Bruins had a chance to take the lead on a third period power play, but decided to give up a golden shorthanded chance instead. Luckily, Tuukka Rask was up to the task. 1-1 tie.

There would be no more scoring in regulation, so to OT we went — and David Krejci worked a little passing magic to set Torey Krug up for the winner. 2-1 Bruins.

That’s it! Bruins win, 2-1.

Notable:

  • This was Torey Krug’s second goal in as many games.
  • David Krejci continues to pile up points, with four in his last three games. He’s now up to 23 on the season.
  • Poor Mike McKenna played one hell of a game, making 42 saves (including 14 in the third period). Truthfully, he probably deserved a better fate, but the Bruins were one shot better.
  • Tuukka Rask made 27 saves.

The Bruins are back at it Tuesday at home against the Coyotes. See ya then!
