Penguins clinch top NHL seed with win over Bruins

The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Boston Bruins 3-2 Saturday at the Boston Garden arena to clinch the top playoff seed in the Eastern Conference standings.

Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and had two assists for the Penguins who have won six straight games and 21 of their last 23.

The game was supposed to be played Friday but had to be postponed because of the massive manhunt in downtown Boston and the surrounding suburbs for the remaining suspect in the deadly Boston Marathon blasts. The suspect was arrested by police on Friday.

Jarome Iginla and Kris Letang scored in the third period for the Penguins, while Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin had goals for the Bruins.
