BOSTON (AP) - Zdeno Chara tied the game with 46.6 seconds left in regulation, then Glen Murray scored the winner 17 seconds into overtime as the Boston Bruins rallied to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-5 on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay scored a club-record four times in the second period to take a 5-4 lead, twice answering with goals less than 30 seconds after the Bruins scored. But after the teams played most of the third period without a goal, Boston showed it can strike quickly, too.

The Bruins pulled goalie Tim Thomas - a third-period sub for struggling Hannu Toivonen - with 90 seconds left, then picked up a 6-on-4 skating advantage when Cory Sarich went off with a double-minor with 52.8 seconds left. Six seconds later, Marc Savard's shot bounced off goalie Marc Denis and into the air in front of the net, where Chara was stationed.

The 6-foot-9 defenseman swatted with his glove and his stick and hit the crossbar-high puck into the net as he was being cross-checked by Filip Kuba. A goal was signaled, but it took four minutes for the officials to confirm it from the videotape.

The goal sent the game into overtime, and the cross-check gave the Bruins a 5-on-3.
