The hub of hockey will be taking a look at the top 10 Bruins regular season games of 2010-11, followed by the top ten playoff games of the 2010-11 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Today we take a look at No. 5: January 10, 2011. Boston Bruins vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Exactly two months after their Epic third-period-comeback in Pittsburgh, the Bruins did it again.

The Bruins used four third period goals in the final three and a half minutes to erase a 2-0 deficit and beat the Penguins 4-2.

The game was scoreless until Penguins forward Mike Rupp found the back of the net midway through the second. Chris Letang would double the Penguins lead minutes later with a power play goal.

The Penguins held onto the 2-0 lead till Zdeno Chara’s power play goal cut the lead in half late in the third. 12 seconds later Marchand would even things up at two.

With the Bruins on the power play after Jordan Staal was sent to the box for holding, former Penguin Mark Recchi would backhand in a loose puck giving the Bruins their first lead of the game. 42 seconds later Gregory Campbell would find the empty net and complete another improbable comeback against the Penguins.

Tuukka Rask made 23 saves in the win.
