BOSTON -- Torey Krug scored at 2:41 of overtime, and the Boston Bruins rallied for a 5-4 win against the Minnesota Wild at TD Garden on Saturday.
Krug, who also had two assists in his return after missing five games because of an upper-body injury, won it on a backhand shot that went five-hole on Wild goalie Alex Stalock.
"You know, I felt some pressure. It felt like I was going to my backhand the whole time," Krug said. "And I figured I was going fast enough that maybe the five-hole was open, and luckily it squeaked in eventually. It was nice to get the game-winner for sure."

Stalock made 34 saves for Minnesota (9-11-3), which lost for the first time in three games but extended its point streak to five games (3-0-2).
"We're all still pretty shocked," Wild forward Zach Parise said. "It felt like we were in control of the game for a long time, the majority of it. They snap a couple at the end and all of a sudden, we're in overtime. So it was a tough one for us."
Jason Zucker gave the Wild a 1-0 lead at 8:53 of the first period, scoring a power-play goal on a rebound of a one-timer by Brad Hunt.
DeBrusk tied it 1-1 with a redirection of Zdeno Chara's initial shot at 4:14 of the second period.
Victor Rask made it 2-1 at 6:14 when a rebound deflected in off his skate in front, and Eric Staal extended the lead to 3-1 with a power-play goal at 14:26.

Marchand cut it to 3-2 with four seconds remaining in the second, getting a rebound off the end boards and scoring five-hole past a sprawling Stalock.
Kevin Fiala scored to make it 4-2 at 5:19 of the third period, converting on an end-to-end rush when the puck redirected in off the stick of Krug as he tried to cut across the crease.
Rask kept the score 4-2 when he stopped Zucker on a breakaway at 17:13.
"We had our chances to put the game away," Zucker said. "I had that breakaway he made a great save on, but I've got to score on that. I mean, that's three goals up with four minutes to go or whatever it was. It's tough. It's hard because Stalock's playing unbelievable."

They said it
"You know, for 55 minutes, I thought we played outstanding. And even in the third period, I thought when they were trying to put a push on, positionally we were great. And sometimes coaches take it a little harder than players, so I'll get over it by tomorrow." -- Wild coach Bruce Boudreau
"You know, you always try to practice that. Not all the time, but once in a while, 6-on-5, get the puck to the net and crash the net, that's what happened. [Jake DeBrusk] and [Patrice Bergeron], they made some good plays there with the puck. I had an empty-net, and on the second goal, I received a good pass again and just tried to shoot it as hard as I could on the net and hope for a rebound or scrum. It worked this time." -- Bruins center David Krejci
"He went in and did a great job pinch-hitting. I thought he had some tough luck around the net. Had that Zucker [breakaway] that could be it, right, and you could say, 'Not our night.' But he battled hard. … He battled hard, good for him. I'm glad he got the win because in those circumstances, it's not easy." -- Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy on Tuukka Rask
