Heading into the third period of Thursday's Eastern Conference Finals Game 1, the Bruins trailed the Hurricanes 2-1 and desperately needed a spark. By the end of it, the Bruins had not only tied the game, but they had taken the lead and then pulled away en route to a 5-2 win and 1-0 series lead.
The Bruins opened the scoring in the most unexpected of ways.
Tuukka Rask was once again strong in net, stopping 29 of 31 shots. Petr Mrazek let in four 30 shots.
Game 2 is Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m.
