First two-game losing streak for Bruins

First two-game losing streak for Bruins


The Florida Panthers showed composure to come from behind and beat the mighty Boston Bruins 4-3 in overtime on Saturday at FLA Live Arena.  

With just 48 seconds to go in the third period, David Pastrnak had given his team a one-goal lead with his devastating wrist shot. The Bruins appeared to be heading for a 17th road win this season…but Aleksander Barkov hadn't said his last word.

The hosts' captain jumped on a throwback to force holding an extra period with only three seconds remaining on the clock.

Sam Reinhart then played the heroes after 17 seconds of play in overtime. His powerful one-timer shook the ropes with such speed that officials initially thought the puck hadn't penetrated Jeremy Swayman's cage.

The Bruins lost two games of continued, after dropping the flag against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday for the first time this season.

Sam Bennett and Brandon Montour also contributed to the war effort for the Florida team.

Bruce Cassidy's squad took the lead three times in the game before losing. Craig Smith and Charlie Coyle pierced Alex Lyon's armor.
