Penguins clinch top seed in the East with win over Boston.
The Pittsburgh Penguins clinched home-ice advantage throughout the Eastern Conference play-offs following their 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins.
It was another emotional night in Boston, with the game being played after originally being postponed from Friday night following the manhunt in relation to the Boston Marathon bombings.
There were heart-felt video tributes to the victims as well as another stirring rendition of the national anthem in a packed arena.
The Penguins have won their past six visits to the TD Garden, and came out victorious again on Saturday despite missing a whole host of key players through injury.
Brad Marchand had handed the hosts the lead in the first period, but Pittsburgh scored three unanswered thereafter with Jussi Jokinen and Jarome Iginla on the score-sheet.
Pittsburgh are now nine points ahead of Montreal in the East, while the Bruins remain in fourth place with 57 points, 11 behind the Penguins, with five games to go.
