Zdeno Chara notched the game-winning goal in round four of yesterday’s shootout for his Boston Bruins to claim victory over the San Jose Sharks at the HP Pavilion. The overall defensive battle featured just two scores in the second period. Daniel Paille first found the net 2:50 into the block before Joe Thornton tied it up just minutes later. Tim Thomas came through with 41 saves for the B’s.
“This is an important time for us,” said Thomas. “We’re down in manpower and when you put in the amount of work we did tonight, to get rewarded with two points is nice. Whether it will help us at the end of the season, we’ll find out.” The Bruins will next face off against the LA Kings this Saturday. Boston Bruins tickets are available right here at Ace!
