GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Boston Bruins rallied with three third-period goals, the go-ahead score by former Portland Pirate Shawn Thornton with 3:18 to play, to win their 12th in a row, 4-2 over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

The Bruins are two shy of the franchise mark of 14 straight set in the 1929-30 season. They also have the most points in the NHL with 103, two more than Western Conference-leading St. Louis.

Jarome Iginla scored his 27th and 28th goals of the season for Boston, the second with an empty net in the final seconds.

Another former Pirate Oliver Ekman-Larsson had a spectacular goal to put Phoenix ahead 2-1 in the second period. Shane Doan scored the other Coyotes goal on a power play. The loss snapped Phoenix's three-game winning streak.
