Bryce Platt scored with 6.7 seconds to play in regulation, and then the Bruins scored in both rounds of the shootout, in a 2-1 road victory over the Battlefords North Stars on Friday night.
It was the Bruins (12-10) fifth straight victory, and their second in eight days over the North Stars (11-6-1-3).
The first two periods were scoreless, which is somewhat surprising since both teams average nearly four goals per game. MacGregor Sinclair scored early in the third to give the North Stars a 1-0 advantage, and it appeared that would be enough for the win.
But Platt tallied in the waning seconds to tie the game.
Overtime settled nothing, so for the second time in three games, the Bruins were headed to a shootout.
This penalty shot contest was nowhere near as long as the 11-round shootout the Bruins had with the Kindersley Klippers on Nov. 3. Michael McChesney scored in the first round of the shootout to give the Bruins an immediate edge, and then Turner Ripplinger scored in the second round.
Jake Anthony stopped both shots he faced in the shootout.
The game opened a three-game road trip for the club. The Bruins will be in Kindersley tomorrow night and Humboldt Sunday afternoon.
