Boston Bruins: Now 9-for-59 on the power play this season

The Boston Bruins power-play woes took a dramatic turn on Saturday as they came from 2-0 down to edge the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 3-2 thriller on Saturday night.

A rare pair of power-play goals sparked the Bruins revival over the visiting Lightning as they continued to enjoy a stellar start to the season.

Tyler Seguin's goal early in the second period was Boston's first at home during a power play this season, then Brad Marchand doubled the total when he scored the tiebreaking goal with 2:16 left in the third period with Tampa Bay down a man because of a four-minute high-sticking penalty.

"It's big. We needed those," Marchand said. "That's what we need our power play to do - step up at the right times, get us in the game."

The Bruins are now 9-for-59 on the power play, still one of the lowest percentages in the league.

Yet the Bruins continue to win, extending their streak to six straight as they enjoy their best start since the 1929-30 season.
