Random Bruins highlight: 3 shorthanded goals...on the same penalty kill

A shorthanded goal is always a boost. Three on one penalty is unheard of.

It’s summer! We need content, you need a quick read/view. Let’s take a trip down memory lane with a daily dose of Bruins nostalgia.

When: April 10, 2010

What: The Bruins scored three shorthanded goals on the same penalty kill in a 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes

The Bruins faced the Carolina Hurricanes with a chance to clinch a playoff spot, but things weren’t looking great at the start of the second period.

The B’s took a penalty and were shorthanded in a scoreless game. Giving up a goal could have put that clinching party on hold, but instead, the Bruins went in the complete opposite direction: they scored three shorthanded goals on the same penalty kill.

When the dust settled, the Bruins got goals from Daniel Paille, Blake Wheeler and Steve Begin, and still had seven seconds left to kill once the dust settled.

This was the first time in NHL history that a team scored three shorthanded goals on the same penalty kill, and the Bruins ended up holding on to win, 4-2.

Jack Edwards may have nearly died in the process, but this was a thrilling moment in an otherwise sleepy game.
