Penguins Vs. Bruins Final Score: Pittsburgh Holds On To Win 2-1

The Pittsburgh Penguins led the Boston Bruins 1-0 after two periods, but the Penguins weren't going to rest on their laurels. Matt Cooke picked up his ninth goal of the season early in the third period to put the Penguins up 2-0. Cooke's goal was assisted by Dustin Jeffrey and Pascal Dupuis. The Bruins answered shortly after to cut the lead back to just one goal.

Joe Corvo picked up his third goal of the season mid-way through the third period to cut the Penguins' lead to 2-1, as the goal was assisted by Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. The Bruins just couldn't get another puck past Marc-Andre Fleury however, as the Penguins held on to win 2-1 and pick up their ninth win in their last 11 games.
