A sleepy night on Causeway Street, one that had the Bruins pointed straight to bed with a goose egg under their pillows, erupted late Tuesday into a crazy six-round shootout that included: 1.) a flying pretzel; 2.) an old fashioned backyard rink kind of do-over and 3). a 2-1 Bruins victory over New Jersey that improved Boston’s record to a near-flawless 5-0-1 to start the new season.
OK, in the interest of hungry news hounds everywhere, we will start with the pretzel. Warning: this is not your granddaddy’s game story.
