VIDEO: Bruins score twice in last 1:22 to tie Game 7
The Boston Bruins scored twice in the last 1:22 of regulation to tie Game 7 and send it to overtime
It was over. At least it seemed to be. The Toronto Maple Leafs had controlled play for most of the game and scored two early goals in the third period to make it a 4-1 game. Nathan Horton scored at 9:18 of the third to stop the bleeding for the Bruins, but it still looked to be Toronto’s night.
That was until 1:22 remained in regulation. With Tuukka Rask pulled, Zdeno Chara unleashed a heavy slap shot from the point. The Leafs couldn’t clear the rebound, and big Milan Lucic lifted it up and over James Reimer to bring the Bruins within one. There was life in Boston.
Then Claude Julien called a timeout immediately after the goal to give his team a chance to calm down and reset. From the very next faceoff, it was all Bruins.
Rask left his net again, and as the puck came to Patrice Bergeron, he let go an accurate wrister that found the top-left corner. Tie game. An incredible comeback in Game 7.
The Bruins fans didn't know what else to do, so they just started throwing towels onto the ice for some reason. From dead in the water to forcing overtime can do crazy things to people.
Rich Peverley then nearly won the game in the closing seconds, but the puck rolled off his stick and he couldn’t get a shot away.
It was one of the craziest comebacks you’ll ever see in hockey, and it happened in a Game 7. Playoff hockey overload. Set your pacemakers accordingly.
