Bruins’ Charlie Coyle Joined Rare Company With His Game 1 Heroics


Charlie Coyle had quite the Game 1 on Thursday night.

The Boston Bruins center committed a costly turnover that resulted in a Columbus Blue Jackets goal before they took the lead 12 seconds later. But Coyle potted the game-tying and game-winning overtime goals to give Boston a 1-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

The two goals, though, put the Weymouth, Mass. native in some pretty rare company. So rare, in fact, that only one other player had done what Coyle had.

Of course, Bruins fans are very familiar with the 2013 Game 7 comeback that sent TD Garden into a frenzy and sent the B’s on to the next round.
