DETROIT (AP) — The Boston Bruins took a couple punches, then hit back hard and put the Detroit Red Wings on the brink of elimination.

Jarome Iginla scored with 6:28 left in overtime on a redirected shot that went off an opponent, lifting the Bruins to a 3-2 win over Detroit on Thursday night in Game 4 of their first-round series to finish off a comeback from a two-goal deficit.

“It was a bit ugly at times, but then we got our stuff together,” Tuukka Rask said after stopping 35 shots.

The Presidents’ Trophy winners and defending Eastern Conference champions can advance with a win against Detroit on Saturday at home.

Wild even series at 2
 with 2-1 win vs. Avalanche

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Charlie Coyle scored his third goal of the series for Minnesota, and the Wild dominated the Colorado Avalanche for the second straight game on their way to a 2-1 win Thursday night that evened the first-round matchup at two apiece.

The Wild outshot the Avalanche a stunning 32-12, establishing a franchise record for fewest allowed by Minnesota. Colorado has been outshot 78-34 in the last two games, with Ryan O’Reilly getting the only goal.

Jared Spurgeon used a slap shot to get a puck past Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov just 3:47 into the game, much quicker than the 65:08 the Wild needed to score the last time. Game 5 will be in Denver on Saturday night.
