The Boston Bruins have won five straight.

The headlines, however, might focus more on a beautiful goal the result of a determined effort from Bruins’ forward Seth Griffith in the second period of Monday’s game against the New Jersey Devils. It counted as the winner, as Boston took the game over late in the middle frame and held on for a 4-2 victory, with Devils’ goalie Cory Schneider taking responsibility.

“To score a highlight goal like that, it originates with a simple, honest, hard-working play,” added Bruins’ center Gregory Campbell, as per Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston.
