The Boston Bruins beat the Chicago Blackhawks Thursday night, 4-3, as David Pastrnak scored a late goal to capture the victory. Jack Ahcan also scored his first NHL goal despite a rough night on defense.
Charlie Coyle would get the scoring started for the Bruins off a rebound from Connor Clifton, though the Hawks would answer quickly with a goal from Alex DeBrincat to make it 1-1.
Brandon Hagel would break the tie four minutes into the second period, but Boston responded with a pair of goals on the power play as Ahcan would tally his first career NHL goal, which was later followed by Pastrnak’s first goal of the night.
Deja vu struck in the third when Hagel would score early in the period to tie up the game again. After a psychical third period, the Bruins would take the lead off a lucky bounce that would go Pastrnak’s way with just 17 seconds remaining in the third. Pastrnak’s second goal of the night would end up the game-winner for the Bruins with a final score of 4-3.
The Bruins host the struggling Arizona Coyotes next on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. ET.
