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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
