hotdogameIn Boston, “Horton hears a WOO” signs are speckled throughout the Garden just about every game night. But  last night fans were certainly making the infamous “WOO” noise, as Bruins forward Nathan Horton capitalized on an opportunity during the 3rd period. Netting his 3rd goal of the season, Horton was able to effectively crack  NJ Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg at the 15:55 mark. Forwards Milan Lucic and  David Krejci tallied assists on the goal which marked a memorable milestone for Krejci as his 200th assist of his NHL/Bruins career. The goal tied up the score for Boston, as they struggled to make something happen on net throughout the majority of the game; especially after Devils David Clarkson scored his 4th goal of the season during the 2nd period at the 8:30 mark.

With Horton’s goal tying the score near the end of the third, the game went into an all too familiar overtime. With neither team able to get one on net in the allocated 5 minutes, Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was faced with another common occurrence as of late- the shoot out.

Fans were treated to an interesting shoot out scenario as forward Tyler Seguin, who took the first shot skated to the net. Effectively scoring and bringing fans to their feet, Seguin was forced to shoot again after an unconfirmed object, quite possibly a hot dog was thrown on the ice mid way through his shot. Per the NHL rules, Seguin was required to take the shot again and much to the dismay of Devils fans found the back of the net yet again. Rask was undoubtedly fantastic in net for Boston allowing one goal in the shoot out and keeping the hopes for a win alive. Brad Marchand took his spot at center ice to shoot for Boston and slipped the puck past Hedberg to give Boston the 2-1 win.
