GAME OF THE DAYPITTSBURGH 6, BOSTON 5 (OT) : Penguins end losing streak

November 15, 2009|Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Pascal Dupuis scored his second goal of the game 1:24 into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins welcomed back forward Evgeni Malkin by ending their four-game losing streak with a 6-5 win against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Malkin, the reigning NHL scoring champion, had three assists in his return to the lineup after he missed seven games because of a shoulder injury.

Dupuis scored when goalie Tim Thomas mistakenly left a puck along the boards. Pittsburgh's Jordan Staal picked it up and fed it to Dupuis, who tucked in his 100th NHL goal and fifth this season.

The Penguins' Bill Guerin sent it to overtime when he scored with 0.4 seconds left in regulation.

The Bruins, 2-0-3 in their last five, scored twice during the final 5:47 of regulation to take their only lead.
