Recap


Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored in the shootout to lift the Boston Bruins to a 4-3 win over the visiting Nashville Predators on Saturday afternoon.

Bergeron added a shorthanded tally in regulation and Milan Lucic scored the tying goal with 1:07 left in the third period for the Bruins, who bounced back from a 6-0 loss at Buffalo on Wednesday.

After David Krejci was denied in the first round of the shootout, Seguin made multiple moves before going to the backhand to beat Pekka Rinne.

Tim Thomas, who made 19 saves in regulation and overtime, stopped Sergei Kostitsyn and Martin Erat in the shootout, leaving it open for Bergeron to win it in the third round.

Lucic knotted it at 3-3 late in the third. After drawing a penalty to start the power play, Lucic came on the right side of the rush and grabbed the rebound of Rich Peverley’s miss, burying it past Rinne for his 20th goal.

Mike Fisher had given Nashville its first lead 2:25 earlier, circling behind the net to grab a puck squirting through the crease and tap it into the open net for a 3-2 lead.

The Predators have dropped four of their last five games.
