— Bergeron potted his 24th goal of the season to even the game at two. The goal put him at fourth in franchise history for most power-play goals.

— Lindholm put the Bruins on the scoreboard in the second period for his eighth goal of the season. His work defensively helped keep the B’s in the game throughout.
