Bruins rally from 0-3 for tie
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Peter Ferraro's power-play goal midway
through the third period capped a three-goal comeback that gave the
Boston Bruins a 3-3 tie with the Florida Panthers in an exhibition
game last night.
Boston (2-2-1) made it 3-1 when Peter Nordstrom poked in a deflection
of a shot by Hal Gill at 15:43 of the second period.
Antti Laaksonen made it 3-2 with a short-handed goal at 3:32 of the
third period, beating Todd MacDonald close in on the right side.
Ferraro's tying goal at 10:45 was a shot from the left circle that
deflected off MacDonald's skate.
Florida (0-1-2) opened its 3-0 lead on first-period goals by Viktor
Kozlov and Jaroslav Spacek, followed by Marcus Milsson's goal at 14:35
of the second period.
Kozlov's goal came just 14 seconds into the game on a shot from the
right wing that hit the far post and ricocheted past goalie Jim Carey.
Both teams squandered power-play opportunities following Ferraro's
goal, including Boston's man advantage starting at 2:22 of overtime.
For the game, the Panthers were 2-of-7 on the power play, while the
Bruins were 1-of-9.
