Bruins vs. Penguins: Pittsburgh Holds on for 2-1 Win

The Penguins came out in a flurry in the third period, recording five quick shots, the last of which found the back of the Boston net off of Matt Coke's stick.

Just when it looked like it was all over for Boston, a blast off the stick of Joe Corvo found the net behind Marc-Andre Fleury and the Bruins extended scoring slump was over.

It didn't come any easier after for Boston, however, as Pittsburgh managed to hold off an aggressive counter-attack and Fleury managed to turn away a number of big looks for the Black and Gold to give Pittsburgh two points and Boston its first losing streak since early December.

It is, for whatever it's worth, only the second time that Boston has lost consecutive games since November 1st. The Bruins have only lost three in a row once this season, falling to San Jose and Montreal twice back in late October.

Although the loss stings Boston, the game does mark the first time in the team's last six matches that it has given up less than three goals.
