New period. New game.
The Boston Bruins weren’t going out without a fight Thursday in their first time back on home ice since before NHL’s pause last March.
And down 2-0 early in the third period to the Philadelphia Flyers, it was a rookie who gave them that spark, ending the Bruins’ even-strength scoring slump.
Jack Studnicka scored his first NHL goal less than a minute into the period off assists from Nick Ritchie and David Krejci.
Just over a minute later, Charlie Coyle delivered the equalizer to tie it up at 2-2, assisted by Craig Smith.
It was the first 5-on-5 goals for the Bruins this season.
