PITTSBURGH – Patrice Bergeron scored twice, including a deflection past Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury 2:43 into overtime to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 victory over the Penguins on Wednesday night.
Bergeron got just enough of Milan Lucic's blast from the point to put it past Fleury as the Bruins ended a three-game losing streak. Officials spent several minutes reviewing the play to make sure Bergeron's stick was below the crossbar when it made contact with the puck.
Zdeno Chara scored his third goal of the season for Boston. Tuukka Rask stopped 37 shots. The last eight meetings between these teams have been decided by one goal.
Beau Bennett and Evgeni Malkin scored for Pittsburgh. Fleury made 21 saves but had no chance on Bergeron's winner.
