The Bruins looked like they were headed for a nothing night at the Garden tonight. They were trailing the New York Rangers 3-0 in the third period and the Blueshirts, who would block 25 shots on the night, were playing at their frustrating best.
But the B's somehow found a reserve that was missing most of the night and scored three third period goals -- the last two in the final 1:31 of regulation with Tuukka Rask pulled for an extra skater -- and they managed to steal a point. The Rangers eventually notched the two points with the Ryan Callahan beating Rask in the fourth round of the shootout for the 4-3 victory, but the B's at least salavaged something.
David Krejci, Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins, helping to gloss over some mistakes that put them in the hole in the first place.
"It's a point," said Krejci. "I think we showed what we've got on this team in the third period. We tied the game, too bad we didn't get two points, but I think the one point is pretty good for us."
Rask made 26 saves and some of them very good ones, but he did let in a couple of goals he wished he had back.
