Bruins 5, Wild 3
BOSTON — Tuukka Rask stopped a third-period penalty shot that turned out to be the difference, and five Boston players scored goals in a win over Minnesota.
After Mikael Granlund cut Boston’s lead to 4-2 with a goal 1:33 into the third, Granlund was tripped by Torey Krug while heading for a short-handed breakaway with 13:05 left. Granlund, whose goal was his first of the season, moved in on Rask on the penalty shot, but the goalie turned the shot aside with his right pad.
The save became even more important when Minnesota’s Eric Staal scored a short-handed goal with 4:04 remaining to close the gap to one goal.
