PITTSBURGH (AP) - Marco Sturm scored one of three Boston goals during a second-period flurry, then won it by being the only player to score in the shootout as the Bruins squandered a two-goal lead before beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 Wednesday night.

Sturm was Boston's first skater during the shootout and, after Pittsburgh's Michel Ouellet shot wide, he stuffed a shot under goalie Marc-Andre Fleury's pads. Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Gonchar each missed for Pittsburgh to end it.

The Penguins played without star Sidney Crosby because of an injury for only the second time in his two-season career and appeared to badly miss him, going 0-for-8 on the power play until Mark Recchi scored the tying goal with 30 seconds remaining in the third on a backhander.

Recchi also scored Pittsburgh's first goal, late in the first period, before Boston scored three times in 4½ minutes in the second.

Stanislav Chistov's first goal of the season tied it on a power play, and Sturm made it 2-1 slightly more than two minutes later. With Pittsburgh's Jarkko Ruutu off for a double minor for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct, Zdeno Chara scored the Bruins' third goal in 4½ minutes with a slap shot from the high slot after he and Patrice Bergeron exchanged passes.
