The Boston Bruins scored three goals off both Pittsburgh Penguins goaltenders on Monday night en route to a 6-1 win in Pittsburgh and a 2-games-to-none lead in the NHL Eastern Conference finals.
After winning both of the series’ first two contests in Pittsburgh, the Bruins return home to face the Pens in games three and four of the best-of-seven affair on Wednesday and Friday evenings at 8:00 PM in Boston. Radio pregame airtimes both nights on 96.3 KQW will be 7:30 PM.
Brad Marchand scored twice for the Bruins, and David Krecji, Nathan Horton, Patrice Bergeron and Johnny Boychuk all added goals. Boston scored three times in the first 16:31 of the game against Pittsburgh’s starting goaltender Tomas Vokoun, who then gave way to Marc-Andre Fleury, who also allowed three scores while making his first appearance in net since the Pens played the New York Islanders in the playoffs’ opening round. Vokoun stopped just nine of twelve shots. Fleury made fourteen saves in seventeen opportunities. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask stopped 26 of 27 Penguins shots.
Brandon Sutter tallied Pittsburgh’s only goal.
