NHL: Boston 3, Tampa Bay 2

March 2, 2013 at 3:49 PM

BOSTON, March 2 (UPI) -- Brad Marchand notched a power-play goal late in the game Saturday, completing a 3-2 comeback win for the Boston Bruins over Tampa Bay.

The Bruins trailed 2-0 after the first period, but used a power-play goal from Tyler Seguin and an even-strength marker from Rich Peverley in the middle frame to forge a 2-2 tie.

The Lightning's Brendan Mikkelson then drew a double-minor for high-sticking with 5:39 remaining in the third, and Marchand made Tampa Bay pay by beating Mathieu Garon during a 2-on-1 break with Patrice Bergeron.

Anton Khodobin made 20 saves for Boston, which reeled off its sixth straight victory.

Steven Stamkos scored his NHL-best 15th goal and Alex Killorn also found the net for the Bolts, who dropped their fourth straight and fifth in six contests.

Garon finished with 24 saves.
