Milan Lucic Gets Bruins On Board 35 Seconds After Penalty Kill (Video)

The Boston Bruins were down a man early in their matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, but they were able to kill the penalty and then some.

Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg was handed a tripping penalty 7:18 into the first period of the Bruins’ weekend matinée, but the Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby-less Penguins couldn’t capitalize. But 35 seconds later, Boston did with a goal from Milan Lucic.

It was an all-around good effort by Boston’s offense, as rookie David Pastrnak did a solid job of wrangling a bad bounce and getting the puck to Lucic. The Bruins winger made a nice shot, and luckily for the B’s, Pittsburgh goaltender Thomas Greiss wasn’t able to make the stop as the Bruins opened the scoring.
