It was an odd one at TD Garden on Thursday night.

After falling into a two-goal hole in the first period, neither team was able to find the back of the net in the following frame. The Chicago Blackhawks were the first to score in the third, giving the Boston Bruins their first three-goal deficit of the season — but it wouldn’t hold.

Joakim Nordstrom started the scoring for the Bruins 1:49 into the final period, followed by Chris Wagner and Torey Krug potting goals with under five minutes left to force overtime.

Although Boston eventually would fall in overtime, head coach Bruce Cassidy was pleased with the team’s effort over the course of the final 20 minutes. To hear what he had to say, check out the video above from “Bruins Overtime Live,” presented by Ace Ticket.
