Dominic Moore’s First Bruins Goal Is Nice Reward For Smart, Heads-Up Play


It looked as if the Boston Bruins might be in for another long night.

For the third consecutive game to begin the season, an opponent scored the game’s first goal. But for the second time in three games, Boston’s offense exploded in response. Ultimately, the Bruins defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-1, but it was Dominic Moore who helped get the ball rolling.

After Jets captain Blake Wheeler gave Winnipeg an early lead with a goal 10 minutes into the game, Moore quickly responded 19 seconds later with his first goal in a Boston uniform to tie the score. The B’s never looked back, scoring three more unanswered goals from there in the win.

Moore’s goal was the subject of the Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind. Relive the terrific tally in the video above.
