Up today: Daniel Paille streaks toward the net before beating Tampa Bay goalie Anders Lindback during the Bruins’ 3-0 victory at TD Garden, Nov. 11, 2013.

Said Paille: “With this play here our centerman came out and shoved the puck out so I basically beat their defender skating as much as I could. As I’m thinking here, I know it’s a two-on-one. I was thinking about passing it but the guy kind of gave me a lot of room so I felt like I had no other choice than to take it to the net. He gave me the opportunity to come in. The goalie came out and that gave me the opportunity to go to my backhand. I knew I had to be quick because the defender right there was ready to pinch on me. I saw the opportunity to put it on my backhand and let it go as soon as possible. I flicked it low, just over the pad. It just went past the pad, hit the post and went in. Any time you score a goal it feels good, especially after a few games when things aren’t going right. When it goes in like that, you’re happy about that.”
