BOSTON, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Two goals from Marco Strum Thursday helped the Boston Bruins record their fifth straight victory -- a 5-1 romp over Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh, which has lost three out of four, got its only goal from Pascal Dupuis.
Ty Conklin -- coming off a career-best, 50-save effort against the New York Islanders Tuesday -- wound up facing only 13 shots Thursday. He let three of them get by him and was removed for Marc-Andre Fleury, who made his first appearance since suffering an ankle sprain Dec. 6.
Both of Strum's goals came in the first period, giving the Bruins a 2-0 lead at the end of the stanza.
