BOSTON - Zdeno Chara scored with 13 seconds left in regulation after David Krejci tied it late, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday night in a game that saw Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik taken from the ice on a stretcher.
Orpik was taken off after being pulled down and punched by Boston's Shawn Thornton in the opening period.
The Penguins said on their Twitter site that he was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital where "he is alert and conscious." Boston's Brad Marchand was injured on the other end when Thornton came skating up quickly from center ice and grabbed Orpik from behind, knocking him down backward before throwing a punch.
Jonathan Huberdeau's goal early in the third period broke a tie and the visiting Florida Panthers beat the Detroit Red Wings, 2-1.
Braden Holtby made 34 saves and Alex Ovechkin scored the second of three goals by the Washington Capitals in the first 17 minutes of a 5-2 victory over the visiting Predators.
