After being down 2 goals the Boston Bruins forced the game into OT and gained a point.

It seemed that the Boston Bruins were done for after going down 2-0 against the New York Rangers. They had opportunities early on but were unable to capitalize on them. After a few goals, the Bruins were in overtime but lost 3-2.

The game could have been completely different as it appeared that the Bruins scored early in the first period. Jake DeBrusk tried to toe the line but the dreaded challenge led to DeBrusk being called offsides and the goal being disallowed.

The Bruins had some good scoring opportunities in the first period, but Henrik Lundqvist had a phenomenal game stopping 33 shots.

The weirdness continued when a shot from Rangers forward Michael Grabner deflected off the boards behind Tuukka Rask and ended up going off his back and into the net. Rask seemed surprised about the goal.

"“I’ll talk to the bull gang right after this…what the hell happened. Must have been a Celtics game last night. Yeah, I felt it on my back, thats all. It hit my mask first. Give me an assist on it”"

The Bruins also struggled a lot on the powerplay. They had four opportunities in the second period and didn’t score any goals.

Bruins Head Coach Bruce Cassidy noticed the problems on the powerplay.
