Bruins trail Penguins entering third

The Bruins got on the board first, but they trail the Penguins [1], 2-1, after two periods of play. The Penguins are outshooting the B’s, 29-20.

The Bruins opened the scoring when David Krejci [2] hit Zdeno Chara [3] in the high slot, where the captain fired off a wrist shot that beat Marc-Andre Fluery. It was Chara’s first goal in 20 games, with his last coming on Jan. 17 vs. the Hurricane (Chara had a hat trick in the 7-0 win).

The Penguins took less than three minutes to respond, as a good opportunity from the third line turned into a 2-on-1 for the Penguins when Johnny Boychuk [4] failed to keep the puck in the zone. Jordan Staal scored on the 2-on-1, his seventh of the season.

Dustin Jeffrey made it 2-1 at 11:19 when he slid one past Thomas from the hahmarks.
