FINAL SCORE: Bruins 4, Penguins 1

IN BRIEF: The Bruins finally got back to their winning ways against the Penguins on Thursday night. In his return to the lineup, Karson Kuhlman impressed with a two-assist night and Par Lindholm got back on the scoresheet while Patrice Bergeron, Sean Kuraly and Brad Marchand also tallied goals. The tale of the game wasn't so much the offense, though, as Jaroslav Halak stood tall in goal for Boston in Tuukka Rask's absence. Halak made multiple monster saves in the victory and looked to be back to his normal self after being shaky in his previous few starts.

BRUINS RECORD: 28-9-12 (68 points)
