Bruins Edge Out Maple Leafs in Shootout

By on January 22, 2009 in ,

For the first time this season the Boston Bruins found a way to win after trailing going into the 3rd period.  The B’s were down 3-1 after 40 minutes when Dennis Wideman and Zdeno Chara both came up big scoring to send it to overtime.  This set the stage for Michael Ryder to score the shootout winner, keeping the Bruins on top of the league standings with the San Jose Sharks at 73 points.

All-Star goalie Tim Thomas finished the game with 31 saves.
Reflecting on the game he said he didn’t know if a comeback was possible.  “The only thing that was in the back of my mind was how well we’ve responded to almost every situation this year,” said Thomas.  With this said the Bruins are clear ahead of the rest of the division by 13 points.  Look for the Bruins next at home January 27th as they square off against the Washington Capitals at 7 p.m.
