BOSTON — Zdeno Chara scored with 13 seconds left in regulation after David Krejci tied it late, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday night in a game that saw Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik taken from the ice on a stretcher.


Reilly Smith also scored for the Bruins, who haven’t lost in regulation at home since late October (10-0-2).


Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots for Boston.


Chris Kunitz and James Neal scored power-play goals for the Penguins, who had their season-high, five-game winning streak halted.


Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 18 shots for Pittsburgh.


Krejci scored with 1:29 to play, beating Fleury with a wrister from the slot. Chara unloaded the winner from near the middle of the faceoff circles, cutting in from the right point.


Midway into the opening period, Bruins winger Shawn Thronton was given a match penalty for grabbing Orpik from behind, pulling him to the ice and punching him when he was down. Orpik appeared to be dazed by a punch, but may have also hit his head on the ice.


The Penguins said on their Twitter site that he was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital where “he is alert and conscious.”


The Penguins led 2-1 after one period on the goals by Kunitz and Neal.


Stars 5, Flyers 1


DALLAS — Tyler Seguin scored three goals and assisted on a fourth in the second period, leading the Dallas Stars.


The game was tied 1-all until Seguin came in on a 2-on-1 rush with Jamie Benn at :39 seconds of the second period. The Stars then scored three times in a span of 1:02 to break the game open.


Seguin took a backhand pass from Alex Goligoski to score from the slot at 17:03, and completed his natural hat trick 40 seconds later. He assisted on Valeri Nichushkin’s goal at 18:05.


Seguin leads the Stars with 15 goals. The hat trick was his second this season and third in his four-year career.


Panthers 2, Red Wings 1


DETROIT — Jonathan Huberdeau’s goal early in the third period broke a tie and the Florida Panthers beat the Detroit Red Wings.


Jimmy Hayes also scored for Florida. Shawn Matthias had two assists and Tim Thomas stopped 22 shots.


Daniel Cleary scored for Detroit, which is only 5-6-6 at home. Backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson, making his second consecutive start, made 35 saves. It was Gustavsson’s first regulation loss of the season (8-1-1).


Jets 2, Lightning 1, OT


TAMPA, Fla. — Mark Scheifele scored 1:04 into overtime and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Tampa Bay Lightning.


Scheifele scored from the near post off a nifty pass by Blake Wheeler.


Wheeler also had a goal for Winnipeg, which finished 4-2 on its longest road trip of the season. The Jets were coming off a 5-2 loss Thursday night at Florida.


Tampa Bay got a goal from Nate Thompson.
