At some point, it seemed inevitable that the Pittsburgh Penguins would mount some sort of a comeback against the Bruins on Tuesday. The hope for Bruins fans just seemed to be that it would come up short.
Unfortunately, it didn’t, as Brandon Sutter scored twice in the third period to lift Pittsburgh to a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Anton Khudobin and the Bruins. Playing their second game in as many days, it was clear that the Bruins were running out of steam. The Penguins seemed to sense it too and finally broke through.
Khudobin kept the Bruins in the lead for much longer than the scoresheet would suggest, so for that he’s our “Schedule Struggle” player of the game. Who’s yours?
