Pens Complete Comeback, Top Bruins

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Jack Johnson and Bryan Rust scored third-period goals as the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied to defeat the Boston Bruins 4-3. Pittsburgh trailed 3-0 in the first period but scored four unanswered goals for the win. Johnson scored a short-handed goal and Rust his 21st of the season. Dominik Simon and Teddy Blueger also scored goals for the Penguins, who have won six of their last seven games and 10 of their last 13. Boston’s David Pastrnak scored his 37th goal. It was just the second time since 2010-11 that the Bruins lost in regulation after leading by three or more goals.

Kansas City Chiefs Punch Ticket To Super Bowl

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Patrick Mahomes tip-toed down the sideline for a game-turning touchdown, added three TD passes, and the Kansas City Chiefs made their first Super Bowl in a half-century by beating the Tennessee Titans 35-24 for the AFC championship. In two weeks in Miami, they will play the winner of the NFC title game between Green Bay and San Francisco. Mahomes did his usual superb job passing, but it was his 27-yard tap dance down the left sideline late in the first half that gave the Chiefs their first lead. From there, they outran the run-oriented Titans and star back Derrick Henry.

49ers Take NFC Championship

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) – Raheem Mostert rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns to make quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo mostly a spectator, Nick Bosa harassed Aaron Rodgers from the start and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 37-20 for the NFC championship. The 49ers advanced to their first Super Bowl in seven years and will play the Kansas City Chiefs in two weeks in Miami for the championship. Aaron Rodgers threw for 326 yards but the Packers lost the NFC title game for the third time since their last Super Bowl trip following the 2010 season.
