The Boston Bruins avenged Sunday's loss to the New Jersey Devils with a thrilling shootout victory on Tuesday night.
It was ugly early, but the B's stormed back from a two-goal deficit in the third period to force overtime. After both teams went scoreless in OT, Boston emerged as the winner in the shootout thanks to goals from Charlie Coyle and David Pastrnak.
Nick Ritchie, Charlie McAvoy, Brad Marchand, and Matt Grzelcyk each scored in regulation for the Bruins. Brandon Carlo made his return to the B's blue line for the first game since taking a scary hit from Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson.
