Bruins complete comeback, beat Lightning

Brad Marchand’s team-leading 11th goal of the season broke a 2-2 tie and completed a come-from-behind victory for the Bruins as they beat the Lightning, 3-2, Saturday at TD Garden.

The Bruins had trailed, 2-0, before coming back and taking the lead on Marchand’s goal, a wrist shot on a 2-on-1 with Patrice Bergeron. It was Boston’s second power goal of the day after the B’s had entered the game without a power play goal at home this season.

The Lightning jumped out to a two-goal lead in the first period thanks to power play goals from Steven Stamkos and Alexander Killorn. Entering the second period facing their fifth multiple-goal deficit of the season, the Bruins pulled even thanks to a power-play goal from Tyler Seguin and an even-strength tally on a one-timer from Rich Peverley.

Shawn Thornton was made a healthy scratch for the first time this season, with Jay Pandolfo skating on the fourth line in his place.

Anton Khudobin picked up the win for the Bruins, stopping 20 of 22 shots faced. The Bruins improved to 14-2-2 on the season with the win and will face the Canadiens Sunday night at the Garden.

WHAT WENT RIGHT FOR THE BRUINS

- It’s pretty impressive to think that of the five games in which the Bruins have trailed by two or more goals, they’ve tied it up three times. Boston came back from two and three-goal deficits against the Rangers before losing in overtime and a shootout, respectively, and they were able to erase Tampa’s 2-0 lead in the second period Saturday.

- The second-period power play on which Seguin scored was one of the Bruins’ best of the season, with great puck movement by the top unit of Seguin, Hamilton, Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Nathan Horton. The goal was the Bruins’ first power play goal at home this season.

- He didn’t face many shots, but considering the he was going up against the top-scoring team in the NHL and the Lightning spent over a quarter of the game on the power play, the results were pretty good for Anton Khudobin. He was decked out of his pads on Killorn’s goal, and there was nothing anyone could have done on Stamkos’ score. Khudobin came up big in stopping Killorn on a shorthanded partial breakaway with less than five minutes left in the third.

WHAT WENT WRONG FOR THE BRUINS

- After killing 27 straight penalties, the Bruins have now allowed power play goals to opponents in back-to-back games. The B’s had gone seven games without allowing a power play goal prior Jim O’Brien’s second-period goal for the Senators on Thursday.

In fact, the three power-play goals they allowed over a four-period span matches what they had allowed in their previous 11 games. Saturday was the first game of the season in which the B’s allowed multiple power-play goals.

- Though the fans weren’t thrilled with the referees, the Bruins took five minor penalties in the first period. The most contested by the B’s were a pair of boarding calls on Dennis Seidenberg and Milan Lucic. Seidenberg forced Benoit Pouliot out of the game on his hit, as Pouliot didn’t have much time to brace himself prior to it. Milan Lucic also went off for boarding in the final seconds of the period.

Those weren’t the only boarding calls in the game, as Pandolfo slammed Killorn into the boards midway through the second period. Vincent Lacavalier had gone off earlier in the second for boarding Johnny Boychuk. The refs became a bit of a punchline throughout the game for all the boarding calls, but they were largely justified.

- Brad Marchand nearly made it a one-goal game midway through the first period when he fired a shot off Mathieu Garon from behind the net. The puck trickled off Garon and back toward the net, but stopped just before the goal line. Eric Brewer cleared the puck away before Patrice Bergeron could push it in.
