After playing listless hockey for over a period, the Bruins were hearing loud choruses of boos echo through TD Garden as they faced a 2-0 deficit to the Arizona Coyotes.
But the B's woke up... and woke up in a hurry.
First, Danton Heinen cut the deficit in half off a nifty pass from Jacob Forsbacka Karlsson.

Just 33 seconds later, the deficit was erased when David Pastrnak pulled within one goal of the league lead with his 21st of the season.
And it only took a little over two minutes for the B's to seize the lead thanks to great work from the B's top line, capped off by Brad Marchand.

That same threesome of Krejci-Pastrnak-Marchand was at it again just over two minutes later, making it four goals in a 4:50 stretch.
Fortunately for an offensively-challenged Black and Gold squad that had only scored four goals in a game once over their previous 13 contests, that second period outburst was enough for the win, as the B's held on for a 4-3 win over the Coyotes.
