ST. PAUL Juuse Saros Jersey , Minn. (AP) Something seems to click for Brad Marchand in overtime.The Bruins forward entered Sunday night’s game with four overtime goals this season. He added to that total to lift his team yet again.Marchand scored 28 seconds into overtime for his league-leading fifth overtime goal and a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.”Overtime specifically, especially this month, he’s sure come through for us,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”But he’s an elite player so we expect him to get his looks every night because he’s hard on the puck and a heck of a competitor, so it doesn’t surprise me.”Tuukka Rask made 24 saves and David Pastrnak also scored for the Bruins, who improved to 47-17-10.Marchand’s winner came after a pass off the boards by Torey Krug gave Marchand a shot at the net from the left faceoff circle. Wild defenseman Matt Dumba got turned around on the play and couldn’t catch up with Marchand.”You need a lot of things to go right but sometimes you benefit from plays, sometimes you don’t,” Marchand said. ”I think this year I’ve been playing with a lot of guys who are making good plays and I’m benefiting from that.”Marchand got his second goal in two games and his third in a four-game span. His 33rd of the season was his eighth game-winner, tying a career high. Marchand also assisted on the Bruins’ first goal.Boston appeared to score first when Noel Acciari found the back of the net early in the second period. However, the goal was waved off after officials reviewed it and ruled that Boston’s Riley Nash ran into goalie Alex Stalock.Just over a minute later, the Bruins beat Stalock on one that counted. Pastrnak notched his 30th of the season – and second in two games – when his one-timer on a feed from Patrice Bergeron sailed past Stalock.Bergeron’s assist came in his first game back after missing a month with a fractured foot. The center last played on Feb. 25. He also assisted on Marchand’s goal.”It’s always getting the legs and the timing and the execution back,” Bergeron said. ”I felt like it was getting better as the game went on.”Minnesota thought it had the tying goal later in the second, but a whistle sounded before Jason Zucker poked the puck past Rask. A replay also showed the puck under Rask’s pad may have crossed the goal line, but a review determined the play was blown dead before the goal.”You knew the puck was over the line,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. ”It’s just a question when did it go over the line.”Rask had a number of key saves in the first two periods, including a stop of Zach Parise on a short-handed chance and on a backhand shot by Marcus Foligno to preserve the one-goal lead.The Wild broke through midway through the third. Captain Mikko Koivu scored his 14th goal when he collected a rebound from Matt Dumba’s shot off the end boards and tucked it between Rask and the post.It was Koivu’s second goal in a 10-game stretch.Minnesota has earned a point in five straight games.Stalock got the start in net after Devan Dubnyk started Saturday’s win against Nashville. Stalock made 26 saves and fell to 10-11-2.”It was a playoff team again tonight so I think we see how tight games are going to be,” Stalock said. ”It’s a bounce here or there. That’s the difference.”NOTES: Members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hockey team from Parkland, Florida, were in attendance and did the ”Let’s Play Hockey” introduction. They were in town for the USA Hockey National Championship High School tournament. … Several players from the gold medal-winning U.S. women’s hockey team took part in a ceremonial puck drop.UP NEXTBruins: At Winnipeg on Tuesday night.Wild: At Nashville on Tuesday night.— DETROIT (AP) To Jeff Blashill, the outcome came down to one simple fact.”They made one more play than us Kyle Turris Jersey ,” the Detroit coach Blashill said.To Toronto center Auston Matthews, it came down to persistence.Article continues below ...”We’ve got a lot of chances the last couple of games,” Matthews said. ”We had some pretty good chances tonight, the puck just wouldn’t go in.”It was nice to finally finish it off there with a half a minute left.”Matthews scored with 30.2 seconds left to give the Maple Leafs a 3-2 victory over the Red Wings on Sunday night.James van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner also scored for Toronto, and Curtis McElhinney made 27 saves.Anthony Mantha and Henrik Zetterberg scored for Detroit.Matthews took William Nylander’s pass and snapped a high shot into the roof of the net from a sharp angle for his 27th goal of the season, but just his fourth winner.”I just tried to play Nylander there,” Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek said. ”I didn’t see Matthews. It was a nice shot by him. He put it in the top corner.”Matthews had gone three games without a goal, his longest drought in a month.”Me and Willie looked at each other and said, `Finally,”’ Matthews said. ”Sometimes you’ve just got to laugh it off and keep going out there and playing the same way. We’re good players. We’re too skilled to create all those opportunities and not capitalize on them.”It just happened to be in the last couple of seconds of the game.”Detroit center Dylan Larkin iced the puck, leading to a faceoff in the Wings end with 37.8 seconds left in the third period.It was the second time in eight games the Wings had surrendered the game-winning goal in the final minute of regulation. Florida’s Jonathan Huberdeau scored with 7.7 seconds left to give the Panthers a 3-2 verdict over the Wings on Feb. 3.Detroit coach Jeff Blashill felt his team needed to show more composure in the dying moments.”I think we can talk to each other and know that we’ve got a little more time there and make a little more poised play,” Blashill said. ”We didn’t and then they made a play on the faceoff.”Mantha opened the scoring on a power play 5:51 into the second period. Standing on the doorstep of McElhinney’s net, Mantha deflected Gustav Nyquist’s shot under the goalie’s arm for his career-high 20th goal.”Obviously, it feels good,” Mantha said. ”I don’t want to stop here, that’s for sure. I would rather get the two points tonight than that 20th.”Van Riemsdyk tied it 1:11 later. Jake Gardiner’s wrist shot from the point hit van Riemsdyk in the left leg and deflected past goalie Petr Mrazek.Toronto took the lead 18 seconds later. Marner skated across the front of the net, forcing Mrazek to leave his feet before whipping a wrist shot by him.The Red Wings tied it midway through the third. Nyquist fed a quick cross-ice feed to a wide-open Zetterberg and he redirected the puck into the open side.Notes: Mrazek stopped 31 shots. …. Red Wings D Mike Green missed his second straight game due to an upper-body injury. .. Detroit D Xavier Ouellet saw his first action since Jan. 25, sitting out nine straight games as a healthy scratch. … Both teams played Saturday. Detroit is 3-2-2 in the second game of back to backs, while Toronto is 6-4-1. .. McElhinney made his first start for the Maple Leafs since Feb. 5.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: Host Florida on Tuesday night.Red Wings: Host Nashville on Tuesday night.
