It wasn't pretty, but it was a win.
The Boston Bruins who spent the entire first period falling down on the ice and getting their rear-ends handed to them, managed to string together a solid effort in the 2nd and 3rd periods, getting a tying goal from Nathan Horton and the eventual game-winner from Brad Marchand in their 3-1 win on Monday night.
Tim Thomas, who got beat on a breakway in the first period, had 33 saves, including a stick save in third period that may have saved the game and the series for the black and gold.
Rich Peverley added an empty-net goal for the B's. Game 6 is Wednesday night in Tampa.
