Bergeron scored with the game winner! Strong play by Jagr lead to that goal—he'd been outstanding in these extra periods.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (5:51 2nd OT)
Crosby with a classic shift. This is what the best players in the world do. He's got wings on his feet right now and is making things happen. Stripping players of pucks, taking hits and providing slick passes.
What a shift for No. 87.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (6:13 2nd OT)
Jagr with another chance. Threw a backhander at the net from the top of the slot that Vokoun couldn't handle. Stopped the rebound as well.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (6:48 2nd OT)
Teams both still seem to have a lot of juice. All that built up energy that they had coming into the series is likely gone. This is a weeks worth of rest expended.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (10:16 2nd OT)
Seguin breaks down the right side and feeds a puck to a streaking Jagr. The old vet chopped at the bouncing puck, and forced Vokoun to make a solid stop.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (11:46 2nd OT)
Rask up to 50 saves now. Iggy with an awesome inside-outside move that about went to give the Penguins a victory. Still can't solve the goalie though.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (14:32 2nd OT)
Malkin with another great chance from the right side. He's been outstanding in this game after being mostly a non-factor through the first two contests. Geno has nine shots on the evening.

Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (18:27 2nd OT)
Rask fights off a Crosby shot from the boards. That isn't a dangerous play for roughly 98% of the players in the league. It looked like a great shot for No. 87
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (19:12 2nd OT)
Back to five skaters aside. Neither team has been able to score on power plays in OT.

It'd be a shame for this awesome game to end of this call.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (3:21 OT)
I may officially be out of ways to say "that was a great save." What an outstanding display by both Rask and Vokoun.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (3:51 OT)
Penguins have done a masterful job of delaying the puck drops to get just a few extra seconds of rest between plays. Especially after icings.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (4:19 OT)
Lucic drives to the net hard, and gets wiped out by Deryk Engelland. The net gets knocked clean off, and Vokoun ends up on the receiving end of the brunt of that play.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (6:03 OT)
Rask makes two big saves for the Bruins. One on the initial shot, and the rebound popped right back out to Dupuis. Nothing doing though.

Four scoring chances for each side so far in this OT, according to the boys on NBCSN.
Bruins down to ten forwards right now. Missing two guys on the bench. The fourth line is injured nearly in its entirety.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (8:13 OT)
Bruins with suffocating pressure on the power play. Penguins manage to dodge a few bullets, and we're back to five skaters aside.

Forget the goaltenders. Each side has had at least two game-saving shot blocks throughout the third period and this OT.
Jagr looking for Krejci on the cross-ice pass several time in the first minute of this power play. They came close a few times, but no shots on goal for their efforts.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (8:34 OT)
Bruins will now get a chance to end the game on the power play. Orpik gets a stick up on Marchand off a faceoff and will take a seat in the sin bin.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (8:46 OT)
Bruins with several good chances after killing off that power play. Vokoun able to match Rask's level of play to this point though.
Pittsburgh 1, Boston 1 (9:20 OT)
Bruins are going to kill this power play off. Pens only come up with one shot, and TD Garden is going nuts again.
Half of this OT is gone.
Only two shots apiece for each side. That stat isn't telling of the level of action that's gone on so far.
