For around 55 minutes of game time tonight, the Bruins were in trouble. Bad penalties, questionable calls, blown scoring chances...it all added up to the Bruins facing a two-goal deficit in the final few minutes of the third.
It was then that the Bruins decided it was time to wake up. With Tuukka Rask on the bench for an extra attacker, it was David Krejci who started the comeback with a tap-in.
That subtle tap by Patrice Bergeron to find Krejci all alone was something else.
But Krejci wasn’t done there! With Luke Kunin in the box and Rask on the bench for the extra attacker again, Krejci buried a sharp angle one-timer to tie the game at 4-4.
It was Krejci’s 2nd goal in just under 50 seconds, which is, uh...NOT BAD.
After that, it was time for OT, and Zach Parise had a front-row seat to watch Torey Krug go coast-to-coast for the winner. Welcome back!
That’s a big-time YIKES effort on defense from the Wild there, but we’ll take it!
Cam should have a full recap in a little bit, but Bruins win, 5-4.
