PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Boston Bruins have fallen off their perch atop the Eastern Conference, scuffling so badly during the first half of the season new CEO Charlie Jacobs called their current state unacceptable.Patrice Bergeron did his best to kick start the long climb back. Bergeron scored twice, including a deflection past Pittsburghs Marc-Andre Fleury 2:43 into overtime to lift the Bruins to a 3-2 victory over the Penguins on Wednesday night.Bergeron got just enough of Milan Lucics blast from the point to put it past Fleury as the Bruins ended a three-game losing streak. Officials spent several minutes reviewing the play to make sure Bergerons stick was below the crossbar when it made contact with the puck.At some point, its going to have to go our way, Bergeron said. It wasnt perfect by all means, but it was a good effort and we found a way to get a big win.Zdeno Chara scored his third goal of the season for Boston. Tuukka Rask stopped 37 shots. The last eight meetings between these teams have been decided by one goal.I think the win was really important for us, Bruins coach Claude Julien said. You know, you say Where is the confidence? Well you need to win some games to get some confidence.Beau Bennett and Evgeni Malkin scored for Pittsburgh. Fleury made 21 saves but had no chance on Bergerons winner.I think we deserved the two points, but we missed a couple of chances, said Malkin, who assisted on Bennetts goal and has seven points in eight games. We had a little bit of bad luck, but we played hard. We shot the puck. We controlled. Just not enough to win.The Bruins came in stumbling through the last six weeks, hardly looking like the team that has spent most of this decade as one of the NHLs elite. They went just 5-6-3 in December, their first losing month in nearly two years, and limped into Pittsburgh coming off three straight overtime losses.Jacobs put the club on notice when he took over for his father on Tuesday. For most of three periods, it didnt look like the message resonated much.The Penguins have managed to avoid Bostons mini-swoon despite a rash of injuries — including a handful of players coming down with the mumps — and began Wednesday tied atop the Metropolitan Division. They controlled play for long stretches, holding onto the puck and keeping Rask plenty busy.Bennett scored for the first time since Nov. 18 thanks to a dazzling feed from Malkin, who chased down Simon Despres errant shot and flicked a no-look backhand to Bennett on the doorstep. Rask was well out of position, and Bennetts wrist shot split Rasks pads to make it 1-0 just 3:37 into the game.Boston tied it late in the first when Chara leaned into a drive from the top of the left circle. Fleury had little chance, and the puck made a distinct plink as it smacked off the far post and carried into the net.The Penguins appeared to reclaim the lead 3:28 into the second when Craig Adams sent a backhand by a sprawled Rask, but the goal was waved off when officials ruled Pittsburghs Zach Sill bowled over Rask. Replays showed Sill tried to hold up before colliding with the goalie, only to be pushed into Rask by Bostons Adam McQuaid.Pittsburgh dominated the period — ripping off the first eight shots not including a handful that slipped just wide of the net — but Boston counterpunched effectively. The Bruins jumped ahead when Fleurys poke check to thwart a Boston rush landed on Bergerons stick, and he buried a wrister over Fleurys glove 15:37 into the second.Malkin tied it 14 seconds into the third, blasting a shot past Rask during a rush for his team-high 18th goal. It helped Pittsburgh earn a point, but the Bruins escaped with a needed boost.By no means do we feel or think that were out of the woods here, Julien said. But its a good start.NOTES: Boston scratched forwards Jordan Caron and David Pastrnak and defenceman Matt Bartkowski.

The 20-year-old Bouchard won 76 per cent of her first serve points in the match. Her next match will be against No. 7 Simona Halep of Romania. On the mens side, Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil fell 6-0, 6-2 to Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in the second round in just over an hour. It was Pospisils first match after getting a first round bye as the tournaments No. 25 seed. Spains Roberto Bautista Agut knocked out Tomas Berdych, also in the second round, beating the fourth-seeded Czech player 4-6, 6-2, 6-4. Berdych had won 11 matches in a row in February and is 16-4 this year. "He really handled the tough situation today really well," Berdych said. "But secondly, more important to me, anything I touched today was basically bad and was wrong. So really, just to recap it, definitely my worst match that I had this year. Thats it, you know." Two-time tournament champion Novak Djokovic, seeded second, was a 7-6 (1), 6-2 winner over Victor Hanescu of Romania in their second-round match.

Ninth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France also dropped out, falling 6-4, 6-4 to countryman Julien Benneteau. John Isner, the No. 12 seed and the only remaining American from the original 14-man contingent, advanced with a 7-6 (5), 6-3 victory over Russias Nikolay Davydenko. Isner, slowed by an ankle injury earlier this season, said he feels good physically and mentally. "Its a situation thats very good for me," the 6-foot-10 former University of Georgia player said. "In the U.S., (on a) hard court that bounces high and pretty slow, and have the fans on my side, I cant ask for anything more. All the surroundings bode extremely well for me. So Im in a good place." He said he wasnt concerned about upholding American honour, either. "No, I dont," he said. "I guess yesterday wasnt a great day for our American men. But, you know, selfishly, Im just worried about myself, really. I certainly want all those guys to do well. But at the same time, its not my concern at all. My concern is myself and just trying to keep moving forward and keep getting better and get back to where I want to be."
