Defensemen engineer come-from-behind win

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 [1] in Toronto. Dennis Wideman [2] and Zdeno Chara [3] brought the B’s back from a two-goal deficit in the third period, and Michael Ryder [4] 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 [5], Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas [6], Blake Wheeler [7], Milan Lucic [8] and Claude Julien [9] will all be traveling to Montreal for All-Star weekend, but Lucic won’t participate due to a shoulder injury.
