Bruins’ Jaroslav Halak Denies Canucks’ Sven Baertschi In Third Period

Jaroslav Halak made some timely stops in the third period Saturday night.

With the game hanging in the balance tied at 1-1, the Boston Bruins goalie denied Vancouver Canucks left wing Sven Baertschi to keep the game knotted.

The save proved important, as the B’s seemed to find a rhythm after a slow first period and were able to force overtime. Boston ultimately lost in OT, but if it wasn’t for Halak, the game likely would have ended in regulation.
