NEW YORK - With just over two minutes to go in the first period at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, the Bruins were trailing the New York Rangers 1-0.
They were getting outshot 20-8 and the last wall of defense, Tuukka Rask, was keeping them in the game.
When the whistle sounded after a stop by Henrik Lundqvist, Jarome Iginla was in the face of Rangers alternate captain Marc Staal near the crease. Fired up, the Bruins winger gave him a shove, which then turned into a heated “bout” of shoves back and forth.
Twenty seconds later, Iginla deflected in a David Krejci pass from atop the crease to tie the game. The Bruins would never surrender the lead en route to a 6-3 win in New York City.
