PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jake Guentzel tipped in Kris Letang's shot midway through the third period to fend off a Boston rally, and Pittsburgh goaltender Casey DeSmith made it stand up as the Penguins beat the Bruins 5-3 on Friday night.

Boston's Chris Wagner and David Krejci scored in a 54-second span of the third to erase a two-goal deficit but Guentzel responded by redirecting Letang's drive from the point by Jaroslav Halak with 9:13 left to put Pittsburgh ahead to stay.
