BOSTON -- Anton Khudobin kept the Boston Bruins in the game as long as he possibly could Thursday night, and his teammates rewarded him with a victory.
Torey Krug scored the tying goal with 31.5 seconds left in regulation, and David Pastrnak converted the winning shootout strike as Boston rallied to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1.
"Tonight, (Khudobin) showed that he was ready to play," Bruins coach Claude Julien said about his backup goaltender. "He made some big saves for us. Solid in the shootout. You couldn't ask more from him."
