NEW YORK — The league-leading Boston Bruins kicked off their four-game road trip in the country’s largest market on Sunday. And they made the most out of their stop to the Big Apple before departing for Western Canada.
Fresh off a long-awaited 4-1 win over the lowly Red Wings on Saturday, the Bruins picked up right where they left off against the Rangers.
Things got a bit testy after Mika Zibenajad put the Rangers within one with 10:08 left in regulation. But the Bruins, sparked by a pair of late goals from Charlie McAvoy and Charlie Coyle late in the first and second periods, held strong in the final 20 as Patrice Bergeron sealed the 3-1 win with an empty-netter with 12.
