Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Patrice Bergeron's redirection with 4:41 remaining in double overtime sent the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals from TD Garden.
Jaromir Jagr won a battle along the left-wing boards in the neutral zone against Evgeni Malkin and fed ahead to Brad Marchand, who waited until Bergeron had a step on Pens defenseman Brooks Orpik before dishing across for the game-winning tip.
David Krejci scored early in regulation for the Bruins, who now hold a commanding 3-0 series edge and can advance to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in three seasons with a win in Game 4 on home ice Friday.
Tuukka Rask was solid once again, stopping a playoff-high 53 shots for the win.
Chris Kunitz tallied in the second period and Tomas Vokoun made 38 saves for the Penguins, who are one loss away from being dumped from the postseason by the Bruins for the first time since 1980.
