BREAKING: Charlie McAvoy Has FINALLY Scored His First Goal Of The Year, An OT Winner Against The Blackhawks

IT FINALLY HAPPENED! Charlie McAvoy has finally scored. 55 games into the season No. 73 is on the board... the OT winner tonight in Chicago.

0-0 after the first period.

Alex DeBrincat opened the scoring on the PP in the 2nd. David Krejci sat for boarding Boqvist (Boqvist would not return - shoulder injury). Marchand has to get that puck out. Had an easy clear. 1-0 Blackhawks.

Sean Kuraly tied the game later in the 2nd, easy goal let up by Lehner. 1-1.

A WILD end to the 3rd period. Penalties on penalties on penalties.

B's caught a break as Drake Caggulia thought he scored the go ahead goal but it was whistled down. Looked like a hand pass but the refs didn't explain.

THE MOMENT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR...

CHARLIE MCAVOY OT WINNER! HIS FIRST OF THE SEASON! THE BRUINS WIN IN OT!!

FINAL: Boston 2, Chicago 1

News, notes and quotes:

- Same lineup as last night - which means Danton Heinen was once again a healthy scratch.

- Sean Kuraly followed up his best game of the season with another strong performance. 2 goals in as many games.

- Brandon Carlo is going to win the 7th player trophy. Having a great season and he's vamped up the physicality. Love to see it.

- He finally did it. He finally scored a goal. No way he was missing there. Jake DeBrusk sets up Charlie McAvoy for his 1st of the season. Fuck does that feel good. I was telling Chief on my podcast today that it was just a matter of time. OT winner. His post-game interview said it all, no one is happier for Charlie than the other guys in that room.

- B's absolutely caught a break with the Caggiula goal being called dead. Refs were kind of a disaster all night. Looked like a hand pass though. Everyone stopped skating.

- Jaro Halak with the 21 save performance. 

B's are absolutely BUZZING after 5 straight wins. 1st in the NHL. Back at it Saturday afternoon vs. Arizona. Let's keep it going.

It was a great night to win a hockey game.
