"I think it was a good game for us," explained center David Krejci
, who scored a game-tying goal
at 11:42 of the 3rd period. "Maybe we came out a short and a couple bad bounces ended up in our net, but if we keep playing the way we did today I like our chances."
But Krejci didn't come up short, as his newly constituted line with wingers Milan Lucic
and Tyler Seguin
were again on the scoreboard on Sunday.
"Yeah it was a 3-on-2," said Krejci of the play started by Boychuk, who passed to a streaking Seguin and finished by Lucic's crease-top feed to Krejci. "We practice that all the time.
"I drive the net, and the guy’s got to make a decision – a little lucky to get a hold of it, and I just put it in the net."
But the B's lucky bounces stopped there as New York's Derek Stepan scored just 39 seconds later to put the Rangers over the top for the third time this season against Boston.
However, Krejci insisted that he liked the Bruins effort on Sunday afternoon in Madison Square Garden.
"I like the way we competed," he said. "We just came up a little short today, but we shouldn’t hang our heads, just keep playing the way we did today.
"I believe if we play the same way we did today, we definitely have a good shot against Toronto."
