Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) – David Krejci scored the game-winning goal
with 0.8 seconds left as the Boston Bruins took a 2-1 victory over the San
Jose Sharks on Thursday. In the final moments of the game, Adam McQuaid got
the puck at the right point and threw it on net, with the puck being partially
deflected by a Shark trying to block the shot. It rolled in the air and Krejci
was in front to knock it to the ice and past Antti Niemi for the win. Jarome
Iginla scored his first goal of the season, off an assist from Krejci, while
Tuukka Rask stopped 38 shots for the Bruins, who have won four straight.
Patrick Marleau scored the lone goal of the game for the Sharks, who lost for
the first time in regulation this season. Niemi stopped 15 shots in the loss.

Final Score: Vancouver 3, New Jersey 2 (SO)

Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) – Mike Santorelli scored the game-winner in the
first round of the shootout to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-2 victory
over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday at Prudential Center. Santorelli, who
scored the game-winner in overtime the last time these teams met, opened the
shootout with a wrister that sailed high over Cory Schneider. Roberto Luongo
did the rest for Vancouver, turning away all three New Jersey shooters to help
the Canucks improve to 4-1-1 on their current seven-game road trip that wraps
up Friday in St. Louis. Ryan Kesler notched a goal and an assist, Daniel Sedin
scored once, and Luongo finished with 28 saves in the victory. Eric Gelinas
and Patrik Elias each lit the lamp once for New Jersey, which has lost two
straight since notching its lone win of the season against the New York
Rangers on Oct. 19. Schneider, playing against his former team for the second
time this season, stopped 19-of-21 shots in the setback.

Final Score: Philadelphia 2, NY Rangers 1

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) – Braydon Coburn’s goal 3:33 into the
third period got the Philadelphia Flyers back in the win column via a 2-1
decision over the New York Rangers at Wells Fargo Center. Steve Mason stopped
30-of-31 shots, including all 10 he faced in the final period, to help the
Flyers halt a four-game losing streak and prevail for only the second time in
nine outings this season. Matt Read assisted on Coburn’s game-winner and
tallied a shorthanded goal earlier in the contest. Brad Richards scored the
only marker for New York, which dropped its second in a row and fell to 2-6-0
on its season-opening nine-game road trip. Cameron Talbot, making his NHL
debut with Henrik Lundqvist out with an undisclosed injury, recorded 25 saves
in defeat.
