BOSTON (AP) - Phil Kessel scored the game-winner in the shootout and Marc Savard had a goal and two assists to lead the Boston Bruins to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.

The Bruins climbed back from deficits of 2-0 and 4-3 to beat the Penguins for the ninth straight time. Pittsburgh's last win against Boston came on Nov. 1, 2003, and its last win in Boston was Feb. 8, 2003.

Hannu Toivonen recovered from a shaky first two periods to record his first win in three months for the Bruins. Toivonen, whose last win came on Oct. 19 against Calgary, allowed four goals on 21 shots through two periods before saving 12 shots in the third to force overtime. He then had two more saves in overtime and turned back 3-of-4 shots in the shootout to set up Kessel's winner.
