Stempniak Scores, B’s Win In Overtime [VIDEO]
A wild night in Florida for the Boston Bruins. They blow two 3-goal leads but when newcomer Lee Stempniak scored in ovretime the B's had a 5-4 win. Now tonight's game against Tampa Bay is a battle for first place in the division.
The Bruins jumped on the Panthers for three first period goals(Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brett Connolly).
But Florida got stronger and started to control play. With less than five minutes to play, the Panthers scored to tie the game at 4-4.
Then came the Stempniak goal at the four minute mark of overtime. He finished with a goal and two assists on the night.
One of the big stories for the Bruins was goalie Tuukka Rask - a season high 47 saves.
At 37-23-7, 81 points, the Bruins trail first place Tampa Bay by a point and that's who on the schedule tonight.
