NHL: Pittsburgh 3, Boston 2 (OT)

March 5, 2011 at 9:58 PM

BOSTON, March 5 (UPI) -- Dustin Jeffrey's unassisted goal 1:52 into overtime Saturday boosted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over Boston.

The Bruins forced an extra frame when David Krejci scored with 33 seconds remaining in regulation, but Jeffrey's second goal of the game ended it in overtime, breaking the Bruins' seven-game winning streak.

Jeffrey picked off an errant pass from Dennis Seidenberg just outside the blue line, skated in alone on Tim Thomas and slipped it past him low on the glove side.

It was only the fourth win in 14 games for Pittsburgh.

Jeffrey also scored in the second period, Jordan Staal found the net and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29-of-31 shots for the Penguins.

Zdeno Chara tallied and Thomas ended with 36 saves for the Bruins.
