3/1/2016: Patrice Bergeron waits for the pass from Ryan Spooner and then sends a one-timer past the goalie to give the Bruins the lead late

  • 00:49 •

BOSTON -- Patrice Bergeron scored a tie-breaking power-play goal with 3:24 remaining in the third period to give the Boston Bruins a 2-1 win against the Calgary Flames at TD Garden on Tuesday.

Calgary was assessed a bench minor for having too many men on the ice with 4:07 to play. The Bruins' power play had been 0-for-4 and hadn't scored in a goal in Boston's previous four games. But Bergeron capitalized on Boston's fifth chance of the night when he beat Joni Ortio with a one-timer from the high slot after a pass from the right half-wall by Ryan Spooner.

It was Bergeron's 24th goal of the season.
