BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand scored 54 seconds into overtime, faking out a defender at the point and then wristing the puck into the net to give the Boston Bruins a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
Marchand’s move past Predators forward Mike Fisher gave Bruins goalie Niklas Svedberg a victory in his NHL debut. Svedberg, who was called up from the AHL, stopped 33 shots.
Jarome Iginla and Johnny Boychuk also scored for Boston, which snapped a two-game losing streak.
Viktor Stalberg and Shea Weber scored for Nashville. Marek Mazanec made 22 saves for the Predators, who lost for the first time in three games.
