TheBruinsBlog.net looks back at the top 10 Bruins moments of calendar year 2010.
A too-many-men on the ice penalty against Buffalo in double overtime seemed the devil’s work to the Sabres, and then they were done in by Satan.
With the Bruins already leading their Eastern Conference quarterfinals series with the Sabres, two games to one, they needed just one sudden-death goal to pull within one victory of the second round.
At the 7:41 mark of the second extra session, Miroslav Satan scored the biggest goal of his brief Bruins career after a bench minor against Buffalo to clinch a 3-2 win and a 3-1 series lead.
The Bruins actually trailed the game, 2-0, heading to the third period. But David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron scored goals in the first first 6:40 of the third stanza to even things up. With Tuukka Rask (35 saves) holding down the fort, the stage was set for Satan to cash in at the end of the Michael Ryder’s end-to-end rush.
Two games later, the Bruins eliminated the Sabres and advanced to the second round for the second straight year.
