BRUINS BEAT: Thanks to Horton’s late 3rd period goal and Tuukka’s strong play, the B’s pulled out a 2-1 shootout win against New Jersey.

B's Fight Back, Answer Call vs Devils

Nathan Horton Goal

Boston, MA - The Bruins - and every other NHL team - knew coming into the 2012-13 season that they needed to get off to a strong start. The rhetoric had been laced into every story since the start of training camp - of how the shortened 48-game season would be a fight to get through.

With tonight’s 2-1 shootout win over the New Jersey Devils, Boston is looking at a 5-0-1 start, having taken 11 of possible 12 points, and the most recent four points coming in the B’s first of seven back-to-backs on the season. Down 1-0 heading into the third period, Nathan Horton's game-tying goal with 4:05 left in regulation got the Bruins into it, and Brad Marchand's sudden death shootout goal sealed the two points.

"Our guys have been really good. We’ve found ways to win," Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien told media following tonight’s win. "To be a good team you’ve got to be able to do that."

"Not every night’s going to be a great night, but at the end of the day it’s about how hard you’re willing to work to get that win and our guys have been good at answering that call."
