Crosby Scores Twice to Down Bruins

BOSTON — Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist, James Neal scored the go-ahead goal on a power play, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 on Tuesday night.

In Pittsburgh’s first game since a late brawl Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers, Crosby gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead 7:41 in. He made it 4-2 with 1:11 left in the second period with his club’s second power-play goal in 48 seconds.

The Penguins maintained their one-point lead for the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference over the Flyers, who lost to the New York Rangers 5-3. The Bruins, who clinched the Northeast Division title on Sunday night, are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games.

Paul Martin and Arron Asham scored Pittsburgh’s other goals. Benoit Pouliot, Milan Lucic and Rich Peverley scored for Boston.
