Bruins fall to Hurricanes in overtime
RALEIGH, N.C. — For two periods yesterday, it was just about what you might expect: The Bruins, who had played just 22 hours earlier in Florida, didn’t seem to have a lot of life; the Hurricanes, who enjoyed a Saturday off at home, looked like the fresher and stronger team.
But in the third period, the B’s — at least most of them — seemed to catch a second wind and gave a terrific effort that barely fell short. They settled for just one point, with the ’Canes grabbing a 4-3 victory on Sebastian Aho’s goal at 1:34 of overtime.
“It was one of those momentum shift games,” said B’s coach Claude Julien. “In the third period we came back hard and played well. You could tell we really wanted to win the game. But when you play back-to-backs, you need everyone going — and (last night) we didn’t have everybody going.”http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/brui ... n_overtime
