Playing the second leg of a back-to-back, the Boston Bruins looked sluggish in the first period against the Colorado Avalanche.

After falling behind 1-0 in the opening 20 minutes, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy called on his “energy guys” to help turn the tide. And that is just what happened, as the B’s bottom six forwards helped grind down the Avs’ scoring lines, while the Bruins were able to knot things up in the second.

Boston went on to win 2-1 in overtime.

After the game, Bruce Cassidy praised his team’s performance. To hear from the head coach, check out the video above from “Bruins Overtime Live,” presented by Ace Ticket.
