The Associated Press
BOSTON (AP) - The San Jose Sharks are heading home after dropping the last two games of what became a 2-2-1 road trip.
Seth Griffith and Gregory Campbell each scored their first goals of the season in the third period as Boston rallied to beat the Sharks 4-3. The Bruins grabbed a 2-1 lead on power-play goals by Brad Marchand and Torey Krug, but the Sharks surged ahead when Logan Couture and Joe Thornton scored 37 seconds apart late in the second period.
Krug finished with a goal and two assists, and Milan Lucic set up three goals to help the B's climb back to .500 at 4-4.
