Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and set up a pair of power-play tallies in the third period, as Pittsburgh clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins at TD Garden.

The teams were set to play Friday night, but the game was postponed because of the daylong manhunt for the second Boston Marathon bomb suspect who was taken into custody Friday night. Pittsburgh was slated to play at home Saturday night against Buffalo, but that game was rescheduled for Tuesday night.

Jarome Iginla and Kris Letang scored in the third period for the Penguins, who have won six in a row and 21 of their last 23 games. Tomas Vokoun made 38 saves in the victory.

Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin scored for the Bruins, who are 0-3-1 in their last four, their longest winless stretch since dropping four straight from March 10-15, 2012. Tuukka Rask turned aside 21 shots in defeat.
