Bruins score 3 short-handed goals in 64 seconds

The Boston Bruins scored three short-handed goals within 64

seconds on the same penalty in a crucial game against the Carolina

Hurricanes.

The game was scoreless Saturday when Matt Hunwick was sent off

for hooking with 18 seconds left in the first period.

Daniel Paille beat Cam Ward 32 seconds after the teams returned

to the ice in the second. Blake Wheeler made it 2-0 just 49 seconds

later. And then Steve Begin gave Boston a 3-0 lead another 15

seconds later.

The Bruins had only scored three short-handed goals all season

before Saturday.

Only once since 1964 has an NHL team scored four short-handed

goals in a game.

The Bruins will clinch a playoff berth with a win or an overtime

loss.
