Bruins Top 10 Games of 2013: Regular Season No. 3

Throughout the next two weeks Bruins Daily will be taking a look at some of the Bruins best games of the 2013 season. This week we will focus on the top five games of the regular season while next week we take a look at the Bruins top five games of the 2013 playoffs.

Today we take a look at the Bruins third best regular season game of 2013.

New York Rangers vs. Boston Bruins, February 12, 2013

On this night it looked like the Rangers were going to cruise to a commanding victory as they led 3-0 late into the third period, but if we learned anything during the 2013 season we learned that the Bruins never say die.

The Rangers jumped out to a 3-0 lead and never looked back until deep into the third period where the Black and Gold made a comeback to remember. David Krejci cut the deficit to 3-1 with 11 minutes left and then when Tuukka Rask was pulled for an extra skater with less than two minutes to play, Nathan Horton made it 3-2. Seconds later with less than a minute left, Brad Marchand tied the game at three stunning everybody in TD Garden including Jack Edwards, who, in typical Jack Edwards fashion, was jumping up and down for joy.

The Rangers eventually prevailed in a shootout off the stick of Ryan Callahan, but what a crazy game at TD Garden. Heading into the lockout shortened season many picked the Rangers as one of the top teams in the East, but, on this night, the Bruins showed the league that they could skate with the Blueshirts.

Three months later, everyone saw how the Bruins really matched up with the Rangers.

“We have to learn from it,” Callahan said. “But at the same time we showed some character in not giving up and not folding the tent in overtime.”

This third period comeback just one of a few memorable third period comebacks the Bruins would have in 2013.

Here are the highlights:

And, for an added bonus, here’s Jack Edwards jumping up and down for joy:
