Darnell Nurse scored with 4:49 left in regulation as the Edmonton Oilers came from two goals down to defeat the host Boston Bruins 3-2 on Thursday night.
Nurse’s shot from the left point beat Jeremy Swayman for the game-winning tally, putting an end to Boston’s season-long, 10-game winning streak.
Evan Bouchard and Ryan McLeod also scored for Edmonton, which has won back-to-back games and four of its last five.
Stuart Skinner made 26 saves for the Oilers, including 10 in the final period.
David Pastrnak logged a goal and an assist while Brad Marchand also scored for the Bruins.
The loss was Boston’s first since Feb.11. The Bruins had also been 35-0-2 when leading after two periods and 33-0-3 when scoring first this season.
Swayman stopped 19 of the 22 shots he faced in Boston’s net.
Boston had a 10-5 shots advantage and a 2-0 lead after the first period, but Edmonton scored once in the second and once more in the third to knot the score in advance of Nurse’s game-winning goal.
Edmonton’s league-leading power play (31.7 percent entering the game) didn’t even see the ice until the third period.The Oilers were 0-for-1 with the man advantage.
After an extended shift in Edmonton’s offensive zone, the hosts broke out and got on the scoreboard with their first shot on goal 3:51 into the game. Marchand corralled the puck off the boards on the left side, where he whipped a shot that leaked through Skinner.
Marchand has scored 20 goals in 12 of his 14 NHL seasons and became just the third Bruin to reach the mark in 10 straight campaigns, joining Patrice Bergeron and Johnny Bucyk.
Boston appeared to double its lead at 13:17 of the opening frame when Krejci buried a one-timer from the left dot, but the power-play goal was called back following an Edmonton challenge for offside.
The Bruins’ lead did reach 2-0 before the first intermission, however, as Pastrnak beat the buzzer with 0.3 seconds left on the clock, pumping home Krejci’s one-time feed in the slot.
Edmonton made it a 2-1 game with 9:16 left in the second.After Boston defenseman Matt Grzelcyk lost an edge at inside own blue line, Bouchard sniped home a shot from the slot to cap a four-on-one rush.
The Oilers tied the score 6:08 into the third, capitalizing on a rare Bergeron turnover as Devin Shore fed McLeod for an open finish in the low slot.
