Pens Lose To Bruins, 4-2

PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The Penguins blew a 2-0 lead, falling to the Boston Bruins in Pittsburgh, 4-2.

Both teams were held scoreless in the first period. Mike Rupp had a backhanded goal set up by Deryk Engelland at 11:39 in the second.

That was followed by a power play goal by Kris Letang with an assist from Malkin at 15:12.

The Pens held off the Bruins for most of the third period until Zdeno Chara got one past Marc-Andre Fleury with 3:33 left during the power play.

The goal then sparked a rally with Brad Marchand scoring 12 seconds later to tie it, 2-2.

With less than a minute on the clock, Mark Recchi had a backhander to make it 3-2. Then Gregory Campbell scored an empty-netter with just eight seconds left for the 4-2 final score.

The Pens were playing without Sidney Crosby who remains out with a mild concussion.

The comeback win was Boston’s second in six games.

    How come everytime we play Boston we are up in the game and doing really well and when the third period comes we lose! This is the second time we have played Boston at home and this has happened! What is going on!!!??? The Penguins can not get lazy in the thrid period and lose focus. Just because you are up 2-0 in the third does not mean dont play as well as the first two period. You need to play until you hear that buzzer go off!!! No matter what though you guys are doing great this year its just come on its Boston and they should not be having a comeback like that with you guys twice in your house! Lets Go Pens!!!!!!
