David Krejci’s overtime bank shot off a defender’s leg gave Boston a victory over its closest competitors in the Eastern Conference. For the Washington Capitals, things could have been so much worse.
Krejci scored a power-play goal off the leg of Capitals defender Shaone Morrisonn with 3:05 left in overtime Tuesday night and the Boston Bruins beat Washington 3-2 in a matchup of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference.
Tim Thomas finished with 34 saves in the big win. The Bruins now hold an 11-point lead in the conference standings over these same Capitals.
