The Boston Bruins were trailing by one in the first period during their game against the Montreal Canadiens on November 14th, It seemed, though, that Charlie McAvoy and Charlie Coyle of the Bruins had other plans for the upcoming period.

Only 8 minutes into the second period, Charlie McAvoy got control of a loose puck off of a rebound and buried it, getting the Bruins first goal of the night. The Bruins started to gain momentum after McAvoy’s early second period goal.. The Canadiens answered right back though, when Michael Pezzetta regained the Habs lead late in the second period, scoring off of a deflection..

Despite being down 2-1, the third period was tilted in the Bruins favor.. McAvoy tallied his second goal of the game, scoring on the power play to tie the game up. .

Bruins forward Charlie Coyle, who was a quiet -1 during the past two games, redeemed himself as he scored an unassisted deflected goal to take the lead. The goal came 3:44 seconds after McAvoy’s game tying goal. Coyle’s 4th goal of the season he found the net again scoring a top shelf goal. The goal itself wasn’t clean by any means but Coyle fought hard for the loose puck against Adam Brooks. Giving the Bruins their first lead of the game.

Newly signed Taylor Hall scored on an empty net securing the 5-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens.
