Marchand goal late in 3rd completes comeback for Bruins in 3-2 win over Lightning

Brad Marchand scored a tiebreaking goal on the power play with 2:16 left in the third period, completing Boston's comeback from a 2-0 deficit with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning that extended the Bruins' winning streak to six straight.

Marchand 11th goal of the season came late in a double-minor high sticking penalty to Brendan Mikkelson. It was the second power-play goal of the game for the Bruins, who had not scored at home with a man advantage entering the game.

Tyler Seguin also scored on the power play for the Bruins 3:22 into the second period, pulling Boston within 2-1 after slow start. Rich Peverley tied it just 1:17 later with an even-strength goal and the score stood until Patrice Bergeron and Marchand broke free for a 2-on-1 late in the third.
