Bruins lose to Penguins, 3-2
PITTSBURGH — The Bruins were seven minutes away from stealing a win. They held a 2-0 lead over the Penguins. Anton Khudobin was making timely saves. Zdeno Chara had kept Sidney Crosby (20 points in his last eight games) off the scoresheet.
But the Bruins were sitting on their lead. It is no way to play against any opponent, far less one as lethal as Pittsburgh. The Penguins made the Bruins pay for their indifference.


Kelly out against Pittsburgh
Kelly missed Tuesday’s game because of an injured left knee. Because of swelling around the knee, the Bruins have not been able to determine the severity of the injury. Kelly, who was with the team in Pittsburgh, will be reevaluated upon the team’s return to Boston.

“We’re anticipating and hoping for minor,” said coach Claude Julien. “But for me to predict right now would be careless.”


Bruins squander lead, fall to Penguins .
Backup goalie Anton Khudobin (31 saves) was splendid in protecting that two-goal lead deep into the third period. But then it all fell apart, as the Pens scored three times in a 4:15 span to ruin the night for the Bruins, 3-2, and run their own win streak to six games.

“We just weren’t good,” said B’s coach Claude Julien after his team’s three-game winning streak ended. “We came out really well and played the first period the way we should. The next two periods we just sat back and let them come to us.”


Knee shelves B’s center
PITTSBURGH — After a subpar start, Bruins third-line center Chris Kelly had been playing better. But now he is sidelined with a left leg injury suffered Monday night in Ottawa on a hit from the Senators’ Chris Neil.

Bruins coach Claude Julien said before last night’s distressing 3-2 loss to the Penguins that the severity of the injury is not yet known. It’s believed, though, that the injury is not too bad.


Bruins blow 2-0 lead
After the Bruins put the clamps on the NHL’s top offense for most of the game’s first 50 minutes, clogging shooting lanes and preventing the Penguins from turning things into an end-to-end sprint, Crosby was simply happy for to survive.

“I think we just believed if we kept going we were eventually going to get it in,” Crosby said. “It seemed like it took forever ... but that’s a big win for us.”
