PA Parenteau scored a power play goal 3:06 into overtime to give the Maple Leafs a 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday. On the play, Parenteau collected a rebound after Jake Gardiner’s initial shot was saved by Tuukka Rask.
The victory erased a 3-1, third period deficit. Leo Komarov and Nazem Kadri each scored goals on a deflection to force overtime and clinch at least one point in the standings for Toronto. Earlier in the game, Daniel Winnik also scored for the Leafs on a tip-in.
“It felt pretty good. We had some chances in the last few games in the power play, we couldn’t find a way put it in the net but there was no better moment to score a goal than that,” Parenteau said to reporters after the game.
James Reimer, playing in his 200th career NHL game, made 39 saves for the victory.
It was the first win by the Leafs over a divisional opponent this season (1-7-6).
