Bruins crack Pens’ win streak

Nick Carbone, Staff Writer

The Pittsburgh Penguins fell to the Boston Bruins 3-2. The game was played in Boston on Monday night. Tuukka Rask was too much to handle for the Pens.

The Bruins came out strong by scoring the first two goals of the game, going up 2-0.

The Pens couldn’t get anything going the first two periods. But when they needed to come up big the most, they did it. They scored two goals in the third period to send it into overtime. Boston then scored in OT to end the Pens’ win streak.

Even though the Penguins lost a heartbreaking game, they still got a point out of it. The Penguins are now in fourth place in the East Division but will go up if they can beat Boston tomorrow.

The two goals for the Penguins were scored by winger Jason Zucker and forward Kasperi Kapanen. Jason Zucker also assisted Kapanen’s goal. Zucker played an amazing game overall as well as Kapanen. Evgeni Malkin had an assist and two shots on net.

Boston’s goals were scored by Brad Marchand, Nick Ritchie, and Craig Smith. Marchand also had an assist to go along with his goal.

Tristan Jarry had a pretty good game by saving 33 out of 36 saves.

The Penguins will be right back up Thursday night to play the Bruins again at 7 p.m. It’ll be a battle that you won’t want to miss.
