NHL Scores And Results: Boston Bruins Score Five In Third Period For 7-4 Win Over Penguins

The Boston Bruins trailed the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 heading into the third period of Wednesday night's game. That's when Boston decided to turn it on, scoring five goals in the final frame for a furious, come-from-behind 7-4 win. 

In all, 15 different Bruins recorded a point in the seven-goal explosion, with three players recording multi-point nights (Mark Recchi: 1 goal, 2 assists; Nathan Horton: 1 goal, 1 assist; and Patrice Bergeron: 2 assists). But as Stanley Cup of Chowder points out, it was hardly a complete game for Boston.

While this game will look like a romp in the boxscore, this was fair from a complete game for the B's. They were flat-out out-played for most of this game, but they were able put together a great third period. It is good to see that this team has some fight and can battle back [...] 

One guy that struggled tonight was Mark Stuart. Stuart can take part of the blame for two of the Penguins' four goals. On the first goal, Stuart left Aaron Asham get behind him and camp out untouched right at the top of the crease. On Crosby's goal, the scoring should read "goal by Mark Stuart from Sidney Crosby". Stuart was one of three Boston skaters not to record a point tonight. He finished -1, while logging 18:32 of ice time.
