TAMPA -- Brad Marchand scored 10 seconds into overtime, and Jonas Gustavsson made 42 saves to help the Boston Bruins to a 1-0 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Tuesday.

Marchand scored his 34th goal on a 2-on-1 rush with Patrice Bergeron, who made a perfect pass to Marchand in the slot for a one-timer that beat Lightning goalie Ben Bishop to the stick side.

"Anytime you have a game like that, a tight-checking game, back-and-forth, it was big to win that," Marchand said. "We're battling for position right now. [Gustavsson] played incredible. We wouldn't have won if he didn't play the way he did. He kept us in it with some big saves."
