All done in Pittsburgh. Bruins beaten and beaten up.

16:07 3d period: Penguins 5-2
Pascal Dupuis on the breakaway. Backhand tuck. Milan Lucic back for Zdeno Chara, goes fishing for puck instead of playing it safe. Good riddance to this game.

15:34 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Johnny Boychuk back on bench.

14:15 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Save of the game. Marc-Andre Fleury gloves David Krejci’s rebound attempt after Joe Corvo shot.

13:29 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Evgeni Malkin off for boarding Johnny Boychuk. Tempers flare. Shawn Thornton in mix.

13:13 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Marty Turco makes tough save through traffic on Craig Adams. Turco keeping his boys within striking distance.

5:07 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Patrice Bergeron not on bench again. Tried but not happening.

2:10 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Joe Vitale partial breakaway. Marty Turco gets a piece of the shot. Big stop.

0:00 3d period: Penguins 4-2
Patrice Bergeron on bench to start third. Took hard spins on ice.

20:00 2d period: Penguins 4-2
After worst start of season, Bruins still knocking on door. All without Patrice Bergeron, Adam McQuaid, Max Sauve. Try figuring this team out.

19:30 2d period: Penguins 4-2
Good looks for Tyler Seguin and David Krejci. Dan Bylsma sure to give it to his club during second intermission.

18:17 2d period: Penguins 4-2
Marc-Andre Fleury kicks out Chris Kelly shot. Bruins getting their chances.

16:49 2d period: Penguins 4-2
Money save by Marc-Andre Fleury on Joe Corvo. Would have been huge goal for Bruins.

13:56 2d period: Penguins 4-2
Tyler Kennedy rings a shot off the post.

11:38 2d period: Penguins 4-2
Still no sign of Patrice Bergeron. Max Sauve also missing. Bergeron would be crippling loss.

10:01 2d period: Penguins 4-2
Milan Lucic wheels around net, finds David Krejci in front. Somehow, Bruins are still in this.

9:07 2d period: Penguins 4-1
Sparkling pad stack by Marty Turco on Evgeni Malkin. Old school stuff.

5:46 2d period: Penguins 4-1
Patrice Bergeron in room again.

4:27 2d period: Penguins 4-1
Chris Kunitz buries dish from James Neal. No chance for Marty Turco.

3:05 2d period: Penguins 3-1
Patrice Bergeron back on ice. Didn’t miss a shift.

1:56 2d period: Penguins 3-1
David Krejci partial breakaway. Goes upstairs on M-A Fleury. A flicker of life.

1:00 2d period: Penguins 3-0
Patrice Bergeron limps off. Takes a Matt Niskanen blast off left foot.

0:00 2d period: Penguins 3-0
Marty Turco in. Tim Thomas out. First NHL appearance since March 17, 2011.

0:00 2d period: Penguins 3-0
Adam McQuaid out for rest of game. Looked like a shoulder injury when he hit James Neal.

20:00 1st period: Penguins 3-0
Disgraceful first period. Could get uglier in second. Bruins playing with zero confidence. On their heels for most of the first. Penguins playing at different gear. Might have to go with Marty Turco to change pace.

19:35 1st period: Penguins 3-0
Dennis Seidenberg trips Evgeni Malkin. Five-on-three for 15 seconds.

18:48 1st period: Penguins 3-0
James Neal with speed, goes far post for PPG. Bruins coming apart at seams.

17:51 1st period: Penguins 2-0
Zdeno Chara off for interference. Five-on-three for 1:25.

17:16 1st period: Penguins 2-0
Milan Lucic off for slashing. This could be curtains if Penguins score.

16:10 1st period: Penguins 2-0
A little better for the Bruins last couple shifts. But Penguins playing at full gas. Putting Bruins on their heels.

11:11 1st period: Penguins 2-0
Shawn Thornton trying to encourage Deryk Engelland to fight. Nothing happening.

7:32 1st period: Penguins 2-0
Third time in week Bruins have given opponent two-spot in first period.

7:12 1st period: Penguins 2-0
Matt Niskanen point shot through traffic beats Tim Thomas. Adam McQuaid in serious pain after checking James Neal. McQuaid to the room.

3:24 1st period: Penguins 1-0
Shawn Thornton deflects Ben Lovejoy shot. Arron Asham jumps on rebound and slips it past Tim Thomas. Another early deficit.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Andrew Ference in. Greg Zanon out.
