BOSTON — Boston's Tim Thomas stopped 27 shots for his second shutout of the season, and Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby was held without a point for the fifth straight game as Bruins defeated the Penguins, 3-0.

Matt Hunwick backhanded a rebound under the crossbar, then had to wait 77 seconds for a whistle so NHL officials could consult a video replay and give Boston the goal. Mark Recchi had the 900th assist of his career, Daniel Paille had his first goal with the Bruins, and Patrice Bergeron scored a short-handed empty-netter with 3.5 seconds left as Boston won consecutive games for the first time this season.

Thomas recorded his 14th shutout -- passing Andy Moog for 10th on the Bruins' career list -- while handing Pittsburgh its second straight shutout.

Pittsburgh has not scored in 149 minutes 9 seconds.
