The Bruins secured one point after a two-goal third period, but Charlie Coyle was able to get them a much-needed win as his goal 34 seconds into the overtime earned Boston a 4-3 victory against the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden.
Coyle, who was the last of the Bruins to come out of COVID-19 protocols, came off the bench and found a lane before sending a wrist shot past the glove of Sabres goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen. It marked a third unanswered goal for the Bruins after Nick Foligno and Taylor Hall scored within 1:25 in the third period to force overtime.
