 5-4 on Tuesday night.

 

"Obviously, you don't want to be down 4-0 at any point in the game -- especially with only one period left," Hoffman said. "But the guys in here stuck together, dug deep and just tried to chip away."

 

The Panthers continued chipping away and won a game they trailed by four goals for the first time since they joined the NHL as an expansion club in 1993-94.

"We had some looks," Rask said. "Definitely if it's four-nothing going into the third you expect to win."

Pastrnak put the Bruins up 1-0 at 11:55 of the second on a wrist shot from the top of the left circle. Nordstrom beat Bobrovsky 2:07 later on a wrist shot from the right circle to make it 2-0 for the Bruins.

 

Boston added goals by Bjork and Chara, taking a 4-0 lead into the third. Florida regrouped after Quenneville pulled Bobrovsky for Montembeault.

 

Ekblad scored 50 seconds into the third, Vatrano cut the margin to 4-2 on a power-play goal 5:26 into the period and the Panthers weren't done.

 

Hoffman scored on a backhand 9:43 into the third and Yandle, who assisted on two of Florida's first three goals, completed the comeback when he scored with 1:39 left in regulation after a rebound drifted to him high in the slot.

"Just ends up in our net," Rielly said. "I don't know what you want me to say."

 

Toronto countered at 3:54 when Kapanen took a feed from Tavares and scored his sixth. Marchand silenced the crowd just 1:14 later, slicing between two Maple Leafs in the slot and again following up his initial shot.

"He really took (the game) over," Rask said. "He wanted to be the difference maker."

 

Neither side gave up much the rest of the way until Chara scored into an empty net with 1:33 left in regulation, prompting a frustrated Tavares to splinter his stick against the iron.

 

"It's not something I, personally, really want to do," he said. "Some emotion came out ... just kind of happened."

 

"We've got a lot of hockey left to play," Tavares added. "It's not going to change overnight. We've got to continue to put the work in and fix our mistakes and continue to find ways to be better -- and stay with it -- because it's going to be hard."

 made 25 saves and the Bruins scored three times in the third period to break open a one-goal game and beat the Devils for the eighth time in nine meetings.

 

The win was only Boston's second in the last seven games (2-2-3), and there were some ugly defeats. In recent shootout losses, the Bruins blew a four-goal lead in the final 20 minutes against Florida and allowed a last-minute goal to Washington.

 

"I thought we played fairly stingy and tonight we had a chance to extend the lead on the power play, we simplified, got it to the net and took advantage of our opportunities," coach Bruce Cassidy said. "I thought we did a good job of limiting them."

 

Pastrnak has an NHL-high 19 goals in 21 games, including 17 in his last 16 contests. Grzelcyk had six career goals in his first 149 games in the NHL.

 

The defenseman had his first two-goal game in No. 150.

 

"We wanted to learn from our mistakes from last game, so we wanted to make sure we came into that third period playing the right way and that's what we did," Pastrnak said. "We kind of controlled the whole period and that's why we won."

Marchand set up Grzelcyk and Pastrnak for goals 14 seconds apart in the first period for a 2-0 lead.

 

Coleman cut the margin in half late in the second, but the Bruins broke it open in the third.

Grzelcyk stripped the puck from Subban at the Devils line and skated in to beat Blackwood in close for a 4-1 lead at 10:33.

Even with 73 points between them, Pastrnak isn’t ready to declare themselves the sport’s best offensive tandem.

Rask’s night included a candidate for save of the year. The 2013-14 Vezina Trophy winner wowed the crowd with a diving blocker save across a vacant net on Evan Rodrigues’ shot with Buffalo trailing 3-1 in the third period.

 

“I don’t think I’ve ever made a save like that,” Rask said. “It could be (the save of the year). I don’t often make highlights like that too often like that because I try to be in position to make saves. It’s fun to make a save like that.”

Pastrnak spoke glowingly of Marchand.

 

“He’s so smart and he’s been playing really well for us. Just an unbelievable player,” Pastrnak said. “I have a huge respect for him, the way he has become the player he is today. … He’s one of the best players in the NHL right now.”

 

Pastrnak’s second-chance, power-play strike made it 3-1 two minutes into the third. Rask helped seal the win with his save on Rodrigues at 4:51.

 

“It’s arguably the save of the year,” Rodrigues said. “You just tip your hat and move on. That was something else.”

 

Montour’s one-timer from the top of the left circle brought the Sabres to 3-2 with 7:02 remaining.

 

Buffalo led 1-0 after Ristolainen scored his first of the season on a rebound of Jack Eichel’s shot from the left circle 5:25 into the game.

“We’re lucky that we got out of there tied and not behind by five, so good thing we did have Tuuks there that first period,” Marchand said.

 

Buffalo finished the first with a 17-4 advantage on shots, but was outshot 20-19 after that.

 

“We played as good a first period as we could play and dominated in every, every area of the game, except the score,” Sabres coach Ralph Krueger said. “The guys deserved more from that.”

The Bruins remained the only NHL team yet to lose in regulation at home (9-0-4).

 

"Sometimes coaches take it a little harder than players. I'll get over it tomorrow," Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.

 

"We played a team that's played 12 games in their building and hadn't had a regulation loss. Arguably the best team in the league and we played them shot-for-shot, hit-for-hit until the last five minutes. Once they got that feeling it was hard to stop them."

 

Krug cut between a pair of Minnesota players and slipped a shot between Stalock's pads for the winner.

 made himself right at home -- at the Ottawa Senators’ expense.

 

The 42-year-old former Ottawa star broke a tie midway through the third period in the Boston Bruins’ 2-1 victory over the Senators on Wednesday night.

 

Chara was given a standing ovation in the first period when the Senators congratulated the Boston captain for reaching 1,500 NHL games this month.

 

“It was something I didn’t expect, usually I get a little heads up before the game,” Chara said. “It’s such an overwhelming reaction. I only have great memories.

 

The fans are so supportive of this team and this city and I made a lot of close friends that I’m still in touch with until today. I can’t thank them enough. Every time I played for this team they showed 100% support. They’re great fans.”

 said. “We made a couple mistakes and they ended up in our net. Some real good players of theirs scored and we just haven’t found a way to score on our chances, but I dont know if we can play much better through two periods.”

 

Marchand tied it at 5:15 of the third with his 18th goal and Chara gave the Bruins the lead at 8:45.

 

Chabot scored 41 seconds into the third.

 

Ottawa has lost back-to-back games after winning three straight.

 

“We had them,” Chabot said. “I think we played real well and halfway through the game they only had like six shots or whatever it was on net. It was a good game. Obviously, we made a little mistake on that second goal in our own zone and it ended up in our net. I think we still did a good job (Wednesday)."

Ok. About my impression of Coyle when he was with the Wild. He would show flashes of scoring prowess and then disappear for weeks. However, he did seem to perform better at left wing, but for whatever reason the Wild kept yo-yoing him back and forth between center and wing and his performance fell off.

 

A lot of Wild fans think he got overpaid. Based on CapFriendly.com comparisons, it's about right, maybe even a bit of a deal for the Bruins. But a lot of Wild fans think every player is overpaid, unless you get a guy like Brad Hunt for league minimum and he performs WAY over his head, then "It's a good deal for the team."

“For 45, 46, 47 minutes, we were playing solid hockey,” Montreal and former Bruins coach Claude Julien said.

 

“We needed that win desperately, and now we’ve got to go back home and find a way to win the next one.”

 

Montreal had allowed 24 goals in four prior games, including a season-worst 8-1 loss to Boston at home Tuesday that featured a hat trick by Pastrnak.

 

Price gave up five goals on 11 shots in Tuesday’s loss to the Bruins and has surrendered 19 total over his last four games.

 

But the Canadiens’ star saw improvement in his team’s effort.

 

“If we definitely play like (we did today), the majority of our games are going to be a better result,” Price said.

The Canadiens got off to a fast start this time after giving up three first-period goals in Tuesday’s matchup.

 

Armia’s backhand shot from the right circle deflected off Charlie McAvoy’s skate and into the net for his 10th goal of the year 1:58 into the game.

Pastrnak evened the score at 6:16 of the third after skating into the right circle and firing a one-time shot past Price high to the stick side.

 

“Twenty-five (goals) by December 1st, I wouldn’t have predicted that,” Cassidy said. “I know he’s certainly, maybe could have had 30. I don’t think he’s had a lot of freebies, let’s put it that way.”

BOSTON -- The Bruins haven't lost in regulation at home yet, and there they were trailing the Blackhawks 3-0 in the third period -- Boston's first three-goal deficit of the season.

 

"Digging the hole 2-0, letting them score (17) seconds into the third," Bruins forward

 scored 54 seconds into overtime, and the Blackhawks recovered after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead to beat Boston 4-3 on Thursday night and end the Bruins' eight-game winning streak.

 

"This team always plays good in their building," Toews said. "It's unfortunate we kind of gave them the chances. ... It's nice to get the win, even though they turned the momentum their way in the third period."

 

The Bruins had not lost since Nov. 16. But their third-period comeback preserved another streak: No Boston pro team has lost a home game in regulation since the Baltimore Orioles beat the Red Sox on Sept. 28.

 

Neither the Patriots nor Celtics have lost at home this season, and the Bruins are now 12-0-5.

 

"That's just high standards, trying to keep up with everyone else," Bruins defenseman
