Swayman makes 35 saves for Bruins in win against Stars

The third period saw Johnston cut the lead to 2-1 at 5:09 after redirecting a point shot from Dallas defenseman Esa Lindell.

Reflecting on their performance, Johnston commented, “I think when we don’t start as well, it’s easy to kind of pick it up and realize you’ve maybe not been playing your best. But that’s definitely not something we want to have to do. We don’t want to have to wake ourselves up after the first period. I think having good starts is huge, and it’s a lot easier to play with the lead rather than having to come back into games.”

At 9:51, Marchand extended the lead to 3-1 with a power-play goal, as he scored from the front of the net after the puck deflected off Lindell’s skate.

Commenting on the penalty that led to the power-play goal, Stars coach Peter DeBoer said, “Poor penalty, poor timing. No sugarcoating that. I’d like to say it was a bad call, but it was a penalty. You can’t do that at that point. We’ve battled back into the game. He’s a smarter, better player than that.”

Pavelski sealed the victory with a goal at 19:32 while Oettinger was pulled for an extra attacker, deflecting Jason Robertson’s shot from the point to bring the final score to 3-2.

NOTES: Swayman is 6-0-0, tied with Tuukka Rask (6-0-0 in 2016-17) and Tiny Thompson (6-0-0 in 1937-38) for the second-longest win streak by a Bruins goalie to start a season, behind only Tim Thomas (7-0-0 in 2010-11). … Boston has allowed two goals or fewer in each of its 10 wins. … Lohrei became the first player born in Louisiana (Baton Rouge) to score an NHL goal. … The Stars played 11 forwards and seven defensemen with forwards Matt Duchene (upper body) and Radek Faksa (upper body) out due to injury.
