With 11 minutes remaining in the third period Monday night, the Bruins were staring at a three-goal deficit and seemed destined for the golf course. What transpired after that point will be etched in Boston sports lore forever.
Nathan Horton cut the Maple Leafs’ lead to 4-2 with a goal 9:18 into the third, but Toronto still held a comfortable cushion with just three minutes to play. Claude Julien then called Tuukka Rask to the bench, and the Bruins proceeded to score twice in under a minute with the extra attacker, tying the game and setting up Patrice Bergeron‘s game-winner in overtime.
