Shots were at a premium after a scoreless first period before the Bruins took advantage of an odd-man rush when Jesper Boqvist found the back of the net to take the lead. Danton Heinen added a goal when he tipped the puck in through a pile of skaters.

Unlike last time, the Canucks’ top offense would not go down quietly as Brock Boeser cut the lead in half with seven minutes to go. With 71 seconds remaining, Vancouver found the equalizer on Filip Hronek’s goal.

Boston made another key mistake with too many men on the ice in overtime. With the advantage of a 4-on-3 power play, Boeser tallied his second goal to complete the comeback victory for the Canucks.

Holding a 2-0 lead with seven minutes remaining in regulation, Boston’s defense faltered late in its fifth straight overtime affair.

— Boqvist got the scoring started with his third goal of the season.

— Heinen scored his first goal since Boston’s last matchup against Vancouver 16 days prior.

— Boeser led Vancouver back with two goals, including the overtime winner.

Heinen entered Saturday night’s contest at +550 to score a goal, per FanDuel SportsBook. With his second-period goal, a $100 wager on Heinen would have cashed for $550 and a $650 total payout.
