WASHINGTON Tyler Seguin wouldn't be shut out forever.
The second year forward's first goal of the series was the overtime game-winner in Game 6 against the Washington Capitals. With Boston's 4-3 win, the Bruins tied the series at three games apiece, sending the deciding Game 7 back to Boston.
Seguin didn't have a single point in the series coming into Game 6, but he also assisted on his team's third goal of the game. At the time, it looked like it might be the game-winner.
He broke up a play in the defensive zone, carried the puck up ice and fired a laser shot off Braden Holtby that created a rebound for Andrew Ference.
Ference rifled the rebound into the open net, and the Bruins had themselves a 3-2 lead. Minutes later, though, Alex Ovechkin corralled a puck off of a face-off and flicked a it past Tim Thomas to make the score 3-3.
The Bruins held their first lead of the series headed into the first intermission on Rich Peverleys third goal of the playoffs, but Washington out-shot the Bruins by a 15-5 margin in the second period, and seemingly took control of the game.
The Bruins failed to score on a four-minute power play when Alex Ovechkin went off for a high-stick that drew blood on Zdeno Chara. Washington bookended the middle period with goals: a long bomb score from Mike Green and a tap-in by Jason Chimera after hed dumped Brad Marchand at the other end of the ice without drawing an interference penalty call.
David Krejci had slipped in his first goal of the playoffs -- a power play strike off a Milan Lucic feed -- between Caps scores to leave it tied at 2-2 at the end of the second period prior to the overtime and Tyler Seguin's heroics.
