Late Second-Period Goal Key in ‘Desperation’ Game for Bruins (Video)

Those who chose to take an early intermission break during Sunday’s Bruins-Jets game were sorely mistaken.

Evander Kane scored to give Winnipeg a 2-1 lead with 27 seconds remaining in the second period, but the action didn’t cease there. Johnny Boychuk responded for Boston, sending a slap shot that was tipped by teammate Daniel Paille past Ondrej Pavelec with just 1.5 seconds left in the period to tie the game heading into the final 20 minutes.

Bruins head coach Claude Julien called the buzzer-beater the turning point in the Bruins’ 3-2 win, which snapped a two-game losing streak and marked Boston’s first win at the MTS Centre.
