The Boston Bruins looked doomed to defeat Wednesday night at Little Caesars Arena, but the B’s top line had other plans.
With Boston trailing the Detroit Red Wings by one goal in the waning moments of the game, Brad Marchand found David Pastrnak alone by side the of the net, and the 21-year-old winger finished the job to even the score at 2-2 with 1:26 left in regulation.
And in overtime, it was Marchand who found the back of the net. Just 35 seconds into the sudden-death period, Marchand capped off a brilliant solo effort by beating Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard with a slick backhand.
The Bruins now have won three straight games and nine of their last 11.
