(NECN: Justin Michaels) - It was a thrilling Monday night in Boston but many didn't know about it until Tuesday morning as the Boston Bruins won in overtime 5-4 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Toronto Sun Sports reads: “The choke’s on us.” It’s a fitting headline after the performance by the Bruins.

With 90 seconds left in their season, the Boston Bruins rallied and scored twice in 31 seconds during overtime. They were trailing by three goals in the third period of the game against Toronto. Six minutes and five seconds into overtime, Patrice Bergeron scored the game seven winning goal.

The Elias Sports Bureau says the Bruins are the first team in NHL history to win a game seven after trailing by three goals in the third period.

Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Milan Lucic spoke after the stunning victory.

The next time we'll see the Bruins play will be this Thursday at 7:30 against the New York Rangers. The Bruins will host because they're the higher seed going into round two, game one.
