It took a shootout yesterday for Miroslav Satan to notch his second goal of the night to lift the Boston Bruins past the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 at the TD Garden. The 15-year veteran kicked off the festivities 9:36 into the first period to give Boston the initial advantage. Viktor Stalberg then answered for the Leafs before the end of the block. Johnny Boychuk provided the only score of the second, only for Tyler Bozak to send the game into OT with 13:48 left in regulation.
Tim Thomas collected 24 saves for the B’s to earn a .923 save percentage. With Tuuka Rask listed as day-to-day due to recent injury, Thomas was able to start in goal for the first time since February 2nd.
“I was trying to show the team they can have some confidence in me again,” said Thomas. “I’m not going to lie: This feels really good right now. It’s the first one I’ve had in a long time, and it’s the first one at home in a long time.” The Bruins will hope to build their momentum this Saturday against the New York Islanders.
