Penguins solve Rask late, edge Bruins 3-2 in playoff rematch

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Brandon Sutter and Jussi Jokinen scored 6:58 apart in the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins held on for a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

Chris Kunitz also scored for the Penguins, who gained a small measure of revenge on the Bruins after Boston swept them out of the playoffs last spring.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 21 shots for Pittsburgh, including a sliding save on David Krejci just before the final horn. Sidney Crosby picked up an assist to push his points total to an NHL-high 21.

Patrice Bergeron and Jarome Iginla scored for Boston. Tuukka Rask finished with 28 saves, but couldn't stop the Bruins from dropping a road game for the first time this season.
