It was over four years in the making, but Chris Bourque has finally scored his second career National Hockey League goal.
The stage he did so on wasn’t bad either.
Bourque scored the lone goal in the Bruins 1-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre Saturday.
The 27-year-old Bourque, the son of Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque, last scored in the NHL on Dec. 30, 2008, when he was a member of the Washington Capitals.
To keep some perspective on the elongated scoring slump, it’s worth noting Bourque spent the 2010-11 season in Europe and last season in the American Hockey League.
His goal against the Leafs comes two days after he was a healthy scratch against the Buffalo Sabres.
