Boston Bruins backup goalie Anton Khudobin was between the pipes for a fourth straight game...and a fourth straight win. This is 4-3 over Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh on Black Friday afternoon.

B's coach Bruce Cassidy is riding the hot hand and it's paying off. He made 17 saves in this one. His record is 7-0-2, matching the number of wins he had in a full season last year.

The key play in this one - a David Pastrnak breakaway goal about five minutes into the third period. It was his 11th goal of the season.

Earlier David Krejci, Sean Kuraly and Matt Grezelcyk scored goals for the B's. It was the first NNL goal for the rookie Grezelcyk.

So the Bruins improve to 10-7-4. The 24 points moves them ahead of Detroit for 3rd place in their division.

Next on the schedule, Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers come to Boston Garden on Sunday.
