Defensemen engineer come-from-behind win
|01.21.09 at 11:47 pm ET|
The Bruins closed out the first half of their regular season schedule with a bang last night by scoring two third period goals in a 4-3 shootout win at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Dennis Wideman and Zdeno Chara brought the B’s back from a two-goal deficit in the third period, and Michael Ryder snapped Boston’s two-game losing streak with a game-winner in the shootout.
With the win firmly in hand, the majority of Bruins players will be off until the regular season grind resumes again on Monday morning. Marc Savard, Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas, Blake Wheeler, Milan Lucic and Claude Julien will all be traveling to Montreal for All-Star weekend, but Lucic won’t participate due to a shoulder injury.
