Boston Bruins rookie Seth Griffith had himself quite the shift in the second period against the New Jersey Devils Monday night. The 21-year old forward blocked a shot in the defensive zone, sending him off on an individual rush that ended in beauty:

That’s Marek Zidlicky and Bryce Salvador attempting and failing miserably to defend Griffith as he bull-rushed his way into the New Jersey zone. Poor Salvador actually did get a piece of the puck, except for the fact that his stick checked ended up bouncing off Zidlicky and remaining in Griffith's reach, resulting with the cheeky finish. 

The goal gave the Bruins a 3-2 lead, one they would double 1:20 later when Reilly Smith netted his fourth of the season en route to their fifth straight victory.
