The Boston Bruins doubled their lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals with a resounding 6-1 victory in game two.

Brad Marchand scored twice, his first coming after just 28 seconds, as the Bruins overwhelmed their hosts at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

The visitors added further goals from Nathan Horton, David Krejci and a second from Marchand to lead 4-1 at the end of the first period.

The Penguins' only reply came from Brandon Sutter thanks to assists from Matt Cooke and Paul Martin, and the home team were unable to mount a comeback during the rest of the night.

Boston killed off any lingering hopes Pittsburgh had of recovering just 27 seconds in the third when Patrice Bergeron found the net.

Johnny Boychuk contributed an assist to the Penguins' fifth goal before finding the net himself with just over a minute remaining.

The Bruins will look to move within one win of a place in the Stanley Cup finals when they host game three of the best-of-seven series on Wednesday.
