NHL: Pittsburgh 3, Boston 2

April 20, 2013 at 3:32 PM

BOSTON, April 20 (UPI) -- Jarome Iginla and Kris Letang each scored a third-period goal Saturday, lifting Pittsburgh to a sixth straight win, 3-2 over Boston in a rescheduled game.

Iginla's power-play tally 4:43 into the final frame broke a 1-1 tie and Letang added another man-advantage goal less than 4 minutes later, providing the eventual game-winner for the Eastern Conference-leading Pens.

Jussi Jokinen scored for Pittsburgh in a contest that had been originally scheduled for Friday night but was postponed due to a manhunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Tomas Vokoun turned aside 38-of-40 shots, improving to 12-4-0 on the season.

Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin scored for the Bruins, seeded fourth in the East.

Tuukka Rask made 21 stops for Boston.
