Bruins Score with :01 Left to Hand San Jose First Loss

The NHL's last undefeated team went down tonight in Boston, but not before taking it to the wire in a battle of two of the best teams in their respective conferences.

David Krejci scored on a deflection of Adam McQuaid's point shot with :01 remaining to hand the San Jose Sharks their first loss of the season.

Patrick Marleau had tied things up just :18 into the period, but it wasn't meant to be for San Jose, who falls in regulation for the first time in its first ten games.

The Sharks drop to 8-1-1 with the loss, while the Bruins improve to 7-2. Tukka Rask stopped 38 of 39 Shark shots in the win, while Antti Niemi stopped 15 of 17.
