Bruins vs. Penguins: Boston Still Trails Pittsburgh, 1-0 After Two

Boston got something in the net in the second period, but much to the chagrin of the 17,656 at TD Garden, it was the blade of Joe Corvo's stick and not the puck that he used the thing to shoot.

The Penguins continued to get standout goaltending from Marc Andre-Fleury in the second period, as Pittsburgh killed off a four-minute minor penalty to Pascal Dupuis for high-sticking.

Benoit Pouliot was also given two minutes for Boston for hooking on what seemed like it was another phantom call, but Tim Thomas was strong in net for Boston, which killed the penalty to keep themselves within striking distance.

Numerous times in the period, a Boston pass found the crease with somebody open on the far post, but the Bruins were unable to convert any of those chances, and when they had other chances, the refs let Pittsburgh skate after cross-checking Boston players out of the way.

Chance after Boston chance fell by the wayside, as Tyler Seguin hit Chris Kelly with a blind pass late in the period that Kelly just couldn't convert.
