The Boston Bruins couldn't make good on any of their three power-play opportunities, and the teams ended regulation tied 1-1.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins are headed to overtime tied 1-1 after neither team was able to get the go-ahead goal in the final 20 minutes.
The physical play intensified in the third period, beginning with this early knee/slash combo from Brad Marchand and Chris Kunitz.
The Penguins were dominant in the third despite taking multiple penalties, and outshot the Bruins, 14-4, in the final frame. Regulation time ended with the Penguins leading in shots, 39-25. Both goalies were solid throughout the first three periods, with Tuukka Rask making some game-saving stops in key moments to keep the game tied.
The Bruins will have to try to win in overtime while down a player. The team announced that Gregory Campbell wouldn't return after suffering a lower-body injury blocking a shot from Evgeni Malkin in the second period.
