The Consol Energy Center was built to be the new home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, but in this inaugural season of the state-of-the-art building it has also been the home of the Bruins’ most dramatic comebacks.
Mark Recchi’s power-play goal with just 49.2 seconds left capped a comeback from 2-0 down in the final five minutes tonight, as the Bruins capped their two-game road trip with a 4-2 win.
The third-period rally was the Bruins’ second this season at Pittsburgh. Down 4-2 after two periods Nov. 10, the Bruins erupted for five goals to win 7-4.
Here’s a glance at the box score:
•Zdeno Chara ended the Bruins’ power-play drought with the club’s first goal with 4:48 left to play. It was the Bruins’ first man-advantage goal since Dec. 28 (five games).
•Brad Marchand scored the tying goal and Gregory Campbell added the empty-netter to seal the victory.
•Making his fourth start in five games, Tuukka Rask earned the win with 23 saves.
