Bruins' rally shocks Pens

PITTSBURGH — Mark Recchi scored the third of Boston's four goals in the final 3½ minutes to cap the second frantic rally in two visits to Pittsburgh, and the Bruins beat the Penguins 4-2 Monday night.

Gregory Campbell added an empty-netter and set up two goals in a rally similar to one when the Bruins trailed 4-2 in Pittsburgh on Nov. 10 before scoring five goals in the third to win 7-4.

"In the first and second, we had some great opportunities," Recchi said of Monday's game. "We could have been right in the game, and we knew if we stayed with it, we could come back."

The Penguins are 0-2-1 without Sidney Crosby (concussion).

Game highlights: Taylor Pyatt scored the go-ahead goal with 3:12 left in the visiting Coyotes' 4-3 win over the Blues.

Around the league: Islanders defenseman Mark Eaton will have surgery on his right hip this week and is done for the season. … The Rangers acquired left wing Wojtek Wolski from the Coyotes for defenseman Michal Rozsival. … Senators forward Alex Kovalev (knee) is out at least a week.
