Abby Chin of "SportsNet Central" recaps Saturday in sports. The Bruins rally to win their sixth in a row and Clay Buchholz, who had been slowed by a hamstring problem, took the mound for the first time this spring for the Red Sox.

At the TD Garden, the Bruins did something they hadn't done at home all season -- score a power play goal. In fact, the B's got two of them, the last one a game-winner by Brad Marchand with about 2 minutes left in the third period that gave Boston a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning to extend their winning streak to six.

The Bruins spotted the Lightning a 2-0 lead before rallying. They had been 0-for-27 on the power play at home this season. They host the Montreal Canadiens Sunday night in a battle for the top of the Northeast Division.

In Florida, Buchholz was limited to 40 pitches but said he felt good after his first Grapefruit League start. The Red Sox came away with a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins as their spring training Mayor's Cup series continued in Fort Myers.
