BOSTON (AP) — Hockey returned to Boston after a one-day postponement, and Jarome Iginla scored the tiebreaking goal that gave the Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 win over the Bruins on Saturday and home-ice advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The game was pushed back by one day because of the manhunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, who was captured Friday night.

Before the game, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma wore a black T-shirt with the words “BOSTON STRONG” over his shirt and tie. During warmups, Bruins players wore baseball caps of the state police and Boston and Watertown police departments. The black cap for Watertown, where the suspect was taken into custody, had the Bruins “Spiked B” logo on the front and the word “STRONG” on the back.
