Bruins shake off Crosby’s late goal, beat Pens in OT

Nov 25, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

Sidney Crosby sent Monday’s game into overtime with a goal in the dying seconds, but it wasn’t enough, as the Boston Bruins beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3.

This was one of those “something has to give” games.

While the Bruins’ 2013 Eastern Conference finals sweep of the Penguins loomed large in the minds of many, Pittsburgh had been dominating the regular season meetings; they came into tonight’s game 9-1 in their last 10 against Boston. The Bruins have been stout at home, lately, moving to 7-0-2 in Beantown after this win.

Torey Krug notched the overtime game-winner¬†while Swedes Loui Eriksson (one goal, two assists) and Carl Soderberg (two helpers) continue to heat up. (One might blame Crosby for losing coverage on Krug’s OT-winner, by the way.)

The Bruins have now won two OT games in a row, improving their overall record to 16-6-2.

The Penguins are on a two-game losing streak, but at least James Neal seems like he’s back to being “The Real Deal.”¬†He now has four consecutive multiple-point games with tonight’s two-goal, one-assist effort.

Pittsburgh continues to look up at Boston among the elite, as they finish the evening at 15-9-1.
