The Bruins had a two-goal advantage in the first period, but the Canadian team reduced it by one goal in the third, so they dropped their goaltender in the final minute and a half hoping to tie the game, but the puck shot wide. The attacking third was tamed by Boston goalkeeper Linus Ullmark, and then, unexpectedly, he was lifted into the opponent’s empty net. In addition to the game’s final score, the Swede contributed to Boston’s sixth success in a row with 26 saves. It was the 14th goal by a goaltender in NHL history in the regular season—two in the playoffs—and the last time it happened over two years ago.
