Boston got a needed assist from Pittsburgh to climb into the first place deadlock with the Canadiens. The Penguins bunched three early goals by Wally Boyer, Bob Woytowich and Ken Schinkel and made the margin stand up. Billy Harris and rookie Jean Pronovost scored Pittsburgh's other goals while J. C.
