The Bruins tied it with eight minutes to play after a flurry in front led to Grzelcyk putting the puck past a diving Talbot.
Boston completed the comeback with just 64 seconds to play in the third, after the Oilers lost control of the puck in their own end. Danton Heinen sent it out in front, allowing Krejci to score his 11th of the season.

The Oilers took the first game 4-2 in Boston on Nov. 26. … Oilers defenseman Kris Russell played his 700th NHL game. … The Bruins acquired D Nick Holden from the New York Rangers for minor league defenseman Rob O’Gara and their third-round pick in this year’s draft. Holden was not in Edmonton in time for the game.
After catching five interceptions and defending 18 other passes, Lattimore took home the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. It allowed the Saints to sweep the Rookie of the Year Awards after Alvin Kamara won the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

According to Pro Football Focus, Lattimore finished with a 90.5 grade, fifth best among cornerbacks. He has a knack for getting physical with big receivers — just watch the interception he made against Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones in Week 14:
Quarterbacks didn’t have much success throwing the ball in his direction, as he was quite effective in making plays on the football. When in coverage, receivers only caught a combined 36 receptions for 486 yards and no touchdowns.
