Bruins Escape Against Penguins

The Boston Bruins jumped out to a 3-0 lead in second-period after David Pastrnak scored 4:22 into the second-period.

Pittsburgh Penguins Head Coach Mike Sullivan decided to make a goaltending change. He decided to yank Matt Murray and put in Tristan Jarry. Pittsburgh got the message and scored four goals, including John Marino’s goal out of the penalty box with three seconds remaining in the second-period to go up 4-3.

Torey Krug tied the game at four for Boston 8:14 into the third-period. Brad Marchand scored the game-winning goal with 1:57 in regulation as the Boston Bruins took down the Penguins by a score of 6-4.

Patrice Bergeron scored an empty-net goal for Boston with 14 seconds remaining in regulation.

The other two goals that the Bruins scored in this game was in the first-period by Jake DeBrusk 5:24 in and Brad Marchand with 6:55 remaining in the first-period.

With Pittsburgh down 3-0, Dominik Kahun (5:35 into the second-period), Nick Bjugstad (9:56 into the second-period), and Bryan Rust (4:01 remaining in the second-period) scored the other goals in this game.

Defenseman Kris Letang left the game in the third-period for the Pittsburgh Penguins with a lower-body injury. Will see how long he is out for.

Patric Hornqvist was already placed on long-term injured reserve. It appears as if Pittsburgh can not catch a break with injuries so far in the 2019-2020 season.

Matt Murray only recorded eight saves in the game for Pittsburgh.

Tristan Jarry recorded 12 saves in this game for the Penguins.

Jaroslav Halak recorded 40 saves for Boston.
