Pittsburgh • Brandon Sutter tapped the puck with his stick and saw the NHL's leading scorer streaking to the net more than ready to play the hero.
Instead, the typically deferential Pittsburgh Penguins center decided to fire it himself. The result provided the biggest moment of the season for Sutter and his red-hot team.
Sutter's wrist shot slipped past Boston's Anton Khudobin with 2:03 remaining to cap a furious third-period rally as Pittsburgh slipped by the Bruins 3-2 on Tuesday night for its sixth straight win. Sutter had already tied the game at 2 a few minutes earlier and found himself in nearly the exact same spot on the ice following a Boston turnover that allowed Sutter and superstar teammate Sidney Crosby to break in two-on-one.
