Boston Bruins fans won’t be happy to hear it, but Tuesday’s game was a big win for the Minnesota Wild.
One night after giving up four goals in the third period in a brutal 5-4 loss to the New York Rangers, the Wild flipped the script by scoring three third-period goals in a 4-3 comeback win over the Bruins at TD Garden.
Minnesota put the comeback in gear with a goal from alternate captain Zach Parise just 4:21 into the third period. A defensive breakdown from the Bruins allowed center Mikael Granlund to connect with Parise in front of the net to narrow the Bruins’ lead to 3-2.
In his breakdown of Tuesday’s game, NESN’s Andy Brickley praised the Wild for their ability to bounce back from a tough loss.
“They showed that they have the character to get the job done,” Brickley. “It was a great response, especially in the third period.”
