Torey Krug Goes Coast-To-Coast To Deliver Bruins Overtime Goal


  • Torey Krug scored at 2:41 of overtime, and the Boston Bruins rallied for a 5-4 win against the Minnesota Wild at TD Garden on Saturday.
  • Krug, who also had two assists in his return after missing five games because of an upper-body injury, won it on a backhand shot that went five-hole on Wild goalie Alex Stalock.

“You know, I felt some pressure. It felt like I was going to my backhand the whole time,” Krug said. “And I figured I was going fast enough that maybe the five-hole was open, and luckily it squeaked in eventually. It was nice to get the game-winner for sure.”

  • With Tuukka Rask pulled for the extra skater, David Krejci cut it to 4-3 at 18:05. Wild forward Luke Kunin was then called for tripping at 18:29, and with Rask again pulled for the extra skater, Krejci tied it 4-4 with a one-timer on a 6-on-4 at 18:53.
  • Patrice Bergeron had four assists, and Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk each had a goal and an assist for Boston (15-3-5), which has won three straight and is 4-0-3 in its past seven games.
  • Rask, who got the start because Jaroslav Halak was sick, made 32 saves.
  • Stalock made 34 saves for Minnesota (9-11-3), which lost for the first time in three games but extended its point streak to five games (3-0-2).

“We’re all still pretty shocked,” Wild forward Zach Parise said. “It felt like we were in control of the game for a long time, the majority of it. They snap a couple at the end and all of a sudden, we’re in overtime. So it was a tough one for us.”
