Bruins Make Winter Classic Exciting, Pull Off Overtime Winner

New, comments

I've seen a lot of really good games at Fenway Park, but that has to go down as one of the best.

The Bruins looked quite bad in the shadow of the Green Monster on Friday, but they turned that all around in the final minutes to beat the Flyers, 2-1, in overtime.

I was behind home plate when the Bruins sent the game into overtime and eventually won the game. After a game full of nothing -- Bruins fans didn't seem too excited about how their team was playing -- that all changed with Mark Rechhi's late goal to send it into OT.

Then, the Fenway faithul -- a new kind of Fenway faithful -- blew up. It was like it was Red Sox season in January.

If you're a Bruins fan, you couldn't have a much better game to kick off 2010.
