PITTSBURGH - It’s not just that the Pittsburgh Penguins are down 2-0 in the Eastern Conference final, but the way they’ve excavated the hole.

Let’s not take anything away from the Boston Bruins, who are now heading home in control of this series with Games 3 and 4 at TD Garden Wednesday and Friday night.

They took what Penguins stars Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang gave them – fat turnovers – in their 6-1 win Monday night, issuing the Penguins nothing in return.

Crosby had another wretched night, fumbling the puck at the Boston less than 30 seconds into the game and handing Boston’s Brad Marchand a breakaway that he cashed in at the 28-second mark.
