Lapierre scored his goal 4:35 into the third period, ruining the shutout for Thomas, who finished with 24 saves.
"I was actually going backdoor for a tip," Lapierre told Versus in a postgame interview, referring to a pass he was expecting from Kevin Bieksa in front of Thomas. "That was a good play. We got a little lucky but we'll take it." (via WEEI)
Perhaps the most telling statistic in the loss came in the hit department, where the Bruins were outhit 47-27.
"We played with a little more confidence and were more patient," Lapierre said on his postgame TV interview. "It was good for us." (via WEEI)
