Bourque ends goal drought, guides Bruins to victory over Leafs
February 04, 2013

TORONTO: Chris Bourque, the son of former Bruins icon Ray Bourque, scored his first goal with Boston in a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

The 5-foot-8 Bourque crashed the net to stuff in a nifty angled pass from behind the net from Chris Kelly at 8:54. Bourque’s only other NHL goal was scored in December 2008 when he played for the Washington Capitals.

“I kind of blacked out I was so excited,” Bourque said.

The Bourques are the fifth father-son combination to play for the Bruins. Chris led the AHL in scoring in 2011-12 with 92 points for Hershey. Brother Ryan is currently playing for the Rangers’ AHL farm team in Connecticut.

Since 2007-08, Chris Bourque has played 13 games for the Capitals, 20 for Pittsburgh, and seven for Boston.

The Bruins threatened throughout the tightly played game, but James Reimer stopped 33 shots from all angles as Boston came at him in waves.
