Bruins' Physical Play Kept Them in Game, Set Stage for Third-Period Comeback It was a wild one on Wednesday night and although the Bruins fell behind the Penguins a couple of times, the B's kept fighting back — literally.

The Bruins were a little lethargic in the beginning, as evidenced by a Penguins goal just over a minute in, but first-period fights fought by Shawn Thornton and Gregory Campbell and a second-period scrap on the part of Adam McQuaid, seemed to ignite the B's. In the end, the B's used the three fights and five third-period goals to beat the Penguins, 7-4.

"The fights were great, they at least gave the Bruins some energy to keep going and stay in the game," said Hall of Famer Brian Leetch on NESN Daily. "Every time that Pittsburgh was able to capitalize, the Bruins were able to come back and just hang in there, hang in there."
