Linus Ullmark made 26 saves and became the first Bruins goaltender in history to score a goal in a 3-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night at Rogers Arena.
Despite being out-shot 35-27 on the night, the Canucks generated 11 high-danger scoring chances to just five for the Bruins. All but one of those Canucks chances were kept out of the net, including nine big third-period saves for Ullmark. But the cherry on top was Ullmark’s historic goal, scored just as the Canucks were threatening to tie the game with their net empty.
Ullmark’s goal was the first by a Bruins goaltender in franchise history. He was only the ninth netminder all-time to accomplish the rare feat.
