    Jussi Jokinen of the Penguins scored against Tuukka Rask in the second period.

    8:29 3d period, Penguins 3-1: Kris Letang scores on power play. Penguins win puck battle in corner to give Letang the chance. Matt Bartkowski was off for high-sticking Pascal Dupuis.

    4:43 3d period, Penguins 2-1: On the power play, Jarome Iginla cranks a long-distance slapper through Tuukka Rask. Good screen by Chris Kunitz. In hindsight, not the smartest play by Brad Marchand to go after Jussi Jokinen.

    3:25 3d period, 1-1: Brad Marchand gets gloves off and tries to engage Jussi Jokinen. Marchand off for roughing. No penalty on Jokinen.


    20:00 2d period, 1-1: Intense 40 minutes. Playoff hockey. Lots of ice bags needed after this game.

    17:10 2d period, 1-1: Adam McQuaid back on bench.

    16:15 2d period, 1-1: Adam McQuaid in tough shape. Took hit from Matt Cooke. Zdeno Chara goes after Cooke on wall. McQuaid to room.

    12:51 2d period, 1-1: Patrice Bergeron pokes puck in. Goal called off. Whistle had blown after Brad Marchand’s first shot. Best push by Bruins so far.

    10:00 2d period, 1-1: Big save by Tomas Vokoun on Rich Peverley. Had lots of speed with David Krejci.


    5:10 2d period, 1-1: All tied up. Jussi Jokinen hops on loose puck. Tuukka Rask dives but can’t stop Jokinen’s shot.

    3:34 2d period, Bruins 1-0: If Nathan Horton can’t play tomorrow against Florida, Rich Peverley will most likely move up with David Krejci and Daniel Paille. Milan Lucic, a healthy scratch today, would skate on fourth line with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton.

    0:00 2d period, Bruins 1-0: Nathan Horton will not return today. No word about nature of his injury. Replay shows Horton favoring left wrist after fight with Jarome Iginla.

    20:00 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Bruins won’t have many complaints about the first period. Bruins with 13-5 shot advantage through 20 minutes. Bruins-like period – rolling four lines, strong forecheck, physical play.

    17:56 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Nathan Horton vs. Jarome Iginla. Not many punches thrown. Both tumble to the ice. Looked like Iginla asked for the fight and Horton accepted after contact in front of the benches. Horton takes off hat, Iginla does same.


    11:07 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Johnny Boychuk slams Brandon Sutter into glass. Divider pops out. Repairs needed.

    10:18 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Brad Marchand with power-play goal. Takes pass from Zdeno Chara, carries puck into offensive zone, slips puck through Tomas Vokoun. Dangles right around Kris Letang en route to net. Tons of speed from Marchand in center ice.

    8:11 1st period, 0-0: Adam McQuaid vs. Tanner Glass. Big swings from big boys. Glass with late flurry to close out fight.

    8:01 1st period, 0-0: Brad Marchand takes tumble into boards. Gets up slowly. Looks OK but having words with refs.

    4:04 1st period, 0-0: One of better shifts lately. Heavy pressure from Patrice Bergeron’s line. Good puck possession in offensive zone.

    0:00 1st period, 0-0: Milan Lucic, Kaspars Daugavins, Jay Pandolfo, Dougie Hamilton, Wade Redden, and Aaron Johnson are the healthy scratches.
