FOXBORO -- The Bruins over yesteryear got the Winter Classic result they wanted. Now the actual ones will hope for a similar result. Playing in front of 42,193 people in the Winter Classic Alumni Game, the B'€™s skated to a 5-4 shootout victory over the Habs alumni. Mark Recchi had two goals in regulation and one in the shootout, while Ray Bourque scored the deciding shootout goal. Sergei Samsonov and Marco Sturm also chipped in with goals. Sturm'€™s third-period goal paled to the last one he scored outdoors, as he scored the game-winning overtime goal in the 2010 Winter Classic against the Flyers at Fenway Park.
