PITTSBURGH (AP) - Mark Recchi scored the third of the Bruins' four goals in the final 31/2 minutes to cap their second frantic rally in two visits to Pittsburgh, and Boston beat the Sidney Crosby-less Penguins 4-2 on Monday night.

Gregory Campbell added an empty-netter and set up two goals during a rally similar to one when Boston trailed 4-2 in Pittsburgh on Nov. 10 before scoring five goals in the third to win 7-4.

Pittsburgh is 0-2-1 without Crosby, who is out with a concussion. The timing of his return is uncertain.

Zdeno Chara scored a power-play goal on slap shot from the right point to start the rally at 16:37, and Brad Marchand scored 12 seconds later to tie it.

Mike Rupp and Kris Letang had put Pittsburgh ahead 2-0 with goals in the second period, and Marc-Andre Fleury was working on his second shutout of the season until the game turned dramatically.

Boston scored only one fewer goal during its late surge than it did in its previous three games combined. Coyotes 4, Blues 3

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Taylor Pyatt scored the go-ahead goal on a wraparound with 3:12 to go in Phoenix's victory over St. Louis.

Kyle Turris scored the tying goal on a rush that took advantage of the Blues' fourth line, and assisted on Pyatt's 10th of the season, a play that caught Jaroslav Halak and the St. Louis defense off-guard.

Phoenix has won three of four.

The Blues have lost four in a row since topping Phoenix. Matt D'Agostini and Brad Winchester scored in a 20-second span early in the third to give St. Louis a 3-2 lead. Winchester, who plays on the checking line, has scored in three straight games for the first time in his career.

The Coyotes had a two-goal flurry in the second, going up 2-1 on Lauri Korpikovki's deflection and Lee Stempniak's breakaway. Stempniak ended a 15-game goal drought. Avalanche 5, Red Wings 4

DENVER (AP) - Matt Duchene scored twice in Colorado's four-goal first period and Peter Budaj stopped 26 shots, helping the Avalanche halt Detroit's three-game winning streak.

Paul Stastny, Kevin Porter and David Jones added goals for the Avalanche.

Colorado chased Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard 14:15 in after he surrendered four goals on 10 shots. Howard was replaced by Joey MacDonald, who allowed only one goal the rest of the way on 16 shots.

Jan Mursak netted his first NHL goal, and Brian Rafalski, Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holmstrom also scored for the Red Wings.
