PITTSBURGH -- Theres a dry erase board in the Pittsburgh Penguins dressing room coach Dan Bylsma uses to remind his players about where they stand in their bid for a Stanley Cup. For the first time this post-season, the Penguins find themselves with a bagel next to their name after the Boston Bruins pulled away for a 3-0 victory in Game 1 on Sunday night. "Its a different look," Bylsma said. One that will only certainly get worse if Pittsburgh cant collect itself in Game 2 on Monday night. The Bruins rode David Krecjis two goals, Tuukka Rasks 29 saves and a hefty amount of antagonism to frustrate the Penguins into the kind of chippy play that does little favours to one of the NHLs most talented teams. For a spell in the second period, the Penguins seemed more intent in sending a message than evening the score. Forward Matt Cooke earned a major boarding penalty and a game misconduct for blasting Bostons Adam McQuaid behind the Bruins net. Forward Chris Kunitz was slapped with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after mixing it up with Bostons Rich Peverley and reigning NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin traded punches with Patrice Bergeron at the end of the period. The fight was the fourth of Malkins seven-year career and a symbol of just how frayed the top-seeded Penguins appeared. "I think anytime you see Evgeni Malkin fighting hes away from his game," Cooke said. "Emotions are high." Cooke understands he and the rest of his teammates will have to keep them in check. The NHL declined to further penalize Cooke for his hit on McQuaid, meaning hell be back on the ice Monday, offering Cooke a sense of relief. Once one of the leagues most notorious hitters, Cooke missed Pittsburghs opening round loss to Tampa Bay two years ago while serving a suspension. He has since cleaned up his act, though watching the second half of the game from the dressing room gave him unwelcome flashbacks. "Ive been in that situation before and its no fun," he said. "Im thankful I can go out tomorrow night and help my team." The Penguins could certainly use it after the Bruins took away the open space the Penguins enjoyed during first and second round wins over the New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators. Whenever Pittsburgh did generate some momentum, Rask found a way to get a glove, a pad or a stick on whatever the Penguins threw his way. Having a handful of shots clang off the posts helped. So did a defence that made things uncomfortable for Sidney Crosby and the rest of the star-laden Penguins. "Tuukka stood tall and made a lot of saves at the right time," Bostons Brad Marchand said. "We just want to make sure we collapse low and try to take away lanes." Something the Penguins failed to do against Krejci. The NHLs leading scorer during the post-season pushed his point total to 19 with his sixth and seventh goals of the playoffs. He beat Tomas Vokoun with a semi-flubbed wrist shot in the first period then added a gritty score in the third period when he charged the net and knocked in a rebound. Its what Krejci tends to do this time of year. He put up a league-high 23 points in the 2011 playoffs while leading the Bruins to their first championship in nearly four decades. Hes on pace to crush that number through 13 games. "It definitely gives the rest of us a lot of confidence and makes us want to do our part too," Marchand said. "It flows all the way through the lineup when a guys going like that and creates energy for the rest of us and allows us to feed off of that." Bostons three goals tied for the most given up by Pittsburgh goalie Tomas Vokoun since he replaced Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 5 of the first round. Bylsma didnt place the blame for Pittsburghs worst loss of the post-season on Vokoun and doesnt seem intent on switching back to Fleury anytime soon. "We lost Game 1, but Tomas I thought played real well in the game," Bylsma said. "He made big saves." Rask just made bigger ones. A sprawling stop on Malkin at the end of the first period kept the Bruins in front and he appeared to get stronger as time wore on. Pittsburgh trailed all of 17 minutes in regulation during a five-game romp over Ottawa in the conference semifinals. Boston tripled that number in one game. Cooke praised Bostons preparation while hinting the Penguins werent as prepared as they needed to be following an eight-day layoff. The Bruins present a significant step up in class and a drastic shift in style over the Islanders and Ottawa. "Its a different game than weve seen," Cooke said. "Its round 3 and I think its an eye opener for us and expectations for how the games are going to go has to change. I think thats healthy for us. Now we can get it out and move forward." Boston expects nothing less. The Bruins flustered Crosby and Malkin in the opener. They doubt it will happen again. "I expect them to have a big game," Bergeron said. "Theyre players who have character, and I dont even need to say theyre excellent players." Matt Ryan Jersey .
