Things don’t typically go well for the Bruins when a game goes to overtime or a shootout.
Boston beat the New York Islanders in the extra period thanks to an absolute snipe from the slot from Patrice Bergeron.
Just 40 seconds into overtime, Brad Marchand drew a tripping call, giving the B’s a 4-on-3 power play — and it took them less than a minute to cash in. Torey Krug carried the puck along the left wing, then fed Bergeron with a pass. Bergeron had enough time to wind up a wrister, zipping it past Semyon Varlamov to give the B’s the victory.

It was Bergeron’s 19th tally of the season.
