New York Rangers @ Boston Bruins game recap video, on November 27, 2015.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! Usually the Bruins don't play well in the game after Thanksgiving day but they played all right today as their power-play led the way to a 4-3 win over the Rangers. With this win, the Bruins are now on a 5-game winning streak.

Quick game summary
In the first period, Bruins Patrice Bergeron scored his 8th goal of the season, making the score 1-0 Bruins.

In the second period, Rangers Oscar Lindberg scored, tying the game 1-1. Later, Rangers Rick Nash scored, making the score 2-1 Rangers. Bruins Matt Beleskey finished a check, which looked to be semi-late, on Rangers Derek Stepan who went down, and Rangers Dylan McIlrath instigated a fight with Beleskey. Later, Bruins Brett Connolly scored his 5th goal of the season, a power-play goal, tying the game 2-2.

In the third period, Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist sold a goalie interference call with some good acting, no doubt there was contact but the embellishment would make Montreal proud, and the Rangers would score on that upcoming power-play, as Rangers J.T.
