Penguins offense improving, but time's running out

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - The Penguins are improving at putting more shots on net. They just need to put more into the net.

And they're running out of time.

Pittsburgh forced Boston goalie Tuukka Rask to make 53 saves, but the Bruins won 2-1 in double overtime on Wednesday night for a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

The Bruins can sweep the best-of-7 series on their home ice on Friday night.

Sidney Crosby doesn't have a point in the series, but Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma says his team can't rely on just its best offensive players. The Penguins led the NHL in scoring this season but have been outscored 11-2 by the Bruins.

Boston will be without center Gregory Campbell for the rest of the playoffs. He broke his right leg Wednesday.
