ESPNBoston.com's Joe McDonald and ESPNChicago's Jesse Rogers break down the Bruins' 2-1 overtime win in Game 2.

CLICK HERE to read Mac's column on how Claude Julien's move to put Tyler Seguin on the third line with Chris Kelly and Daniel Paille worked wonders for Boston.

Here's an excerpt:

Paille scored the winner at 13:48 of the extra period, with Seguin earning an assist. Earlier, Paille set up Kelly's goal at 14:58 of the second period to tie the game at 1-1.

They collectively gave the Bruins a much-needed spark to get back into this series. Seguin, who has struggled in the playoffs with just one goal, played his best game of the postseason. He was strong on the forecheck. He was backchecking and was creating chances.

"He was huge for us," Paille said. "He's definitely taken some heat but he is a special player and he can step up for all of us, and hopefully this is a step forward for him.

"You've seen him grow huge as a player, and it's a bit frustrating for him right now that he hasn't scored like he has, but we're not too worried about him. We know that he's a special player and he can, and it's just a matter of time for him."

Paille's relentless style of play and speed created both goals, while Kelly was finally rewarded with his first goal of the playoffs and his first point since April 17.
