BOSTON, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- David Krejci converted a pass from Jarome Iginla into a game-winner 1:18 into overtime Saturday, handing the Boston Bruins a 3-2 victory over Carolina.

Shorty after the start of overtime, Iginla broke into the Hurricanes zone, bursting through a pair of defenders before finding Krejci open in the slot.
