Boston rallies in 3rd period to beat Phoenix for 12th straight win

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Boston Bruins rallied with three third-period goals, the go-ahead score by Shawn Thornton with 3:18 to play, to win their 12th in a row, 4-2 over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

The Bruins are two shy of the franchise mark of 14 straight set in the 1929-30 season. They also have the most points in the NHL with 103, two more than Western Conference-leading St. Louis.

Jarome Iginla scored his 27th and 28th goals of the season for Boston, the second with an empty net in the final seconds.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson had a spectacular goal to put Phoenix ahead 2-1 in the second period. Shane Doan scored the other Coyotes goal on a power play. The loss snapped Phoenix's three-game winning streak.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
