LAS VEGAS - For the first time this season, the Bruins were facing a bit of adversity.
Buried in a quick two-goal hole on Tuesday night, the Black & Gold could have scoffed at the thought of bearing down for an early-season comeback in hostile territory, against a team that many believe can challenge for the Stanley Cup.
Such an approach, however, is not in their DNA. Boston was instead undeterred by the early deficit and, behind a stellar effort from its top line, surged back for a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena to improve to 3-0-0 for the first time since 2001-02.
"Obviously being down early, being able to come back, winning a close game at the end, pushing them off a little bit at the end," said Torey Krug, who notched the eventual winner with a blistering slapper at 2:27 of the second, "those are just experiences that we'll put in our pocket and use for another day."
