After the Devils had missed on an opportunity in the Bruins zone, Boston moved up ice with a 4-on-2 advantage heading into the Devils’ zone. Bruins defenseman Torey Krug controlled along the right boards and fed a pass to David Pastrnak. Pastrnak quickly moved the puck to Spooner skating through the left faceoff circle.
What a moment for Ryan Spooner’s first NHL goal. OT winner. Great kid. Worked hard. Deserving.

The 23-year-old Spooner has appeared in 35 games so far in his NHL career. He has spent most of his pro career playing for the Providence Bruins, scoring 39 goals and 97 assists for 136 points in 150 AHL games. Spooner was recalled by the parent club on February 8th and has been pressed into duty due to injuries in the Boston lineup.
