BostonBruins.com – The Pittsburgh Penguins led the NHL in goals per game (3.65) heading into Tuesday night’s showdown with the Bruins. Their powerful offense also had them towards the top on the power play – they rank third, converting on 25.7 of their chances with the man advantage (though they were 0-4 on Tuesday).
Even with the league’s most potent offense, and arguably the league’s greatest player, Sidney Crosby, always looming, the Bruins were shutting out the Pens through 54 minutes.
Anton Khudobin was standing strong under the bright lights of a premier matchup – the second night of a back-to-back, on the road – against a team that many believe could meet the B’s down the road in the playoffs.
But, the Bruins struggled to clamp down on a third period lead, allowing the Penguins to rally for three goals in the final six minutes and come away with a 3-2 win.
