TEAMS: Boston Bruins
The Bruins haven't been themselves in afternoon games this season, as their 4-6-2 record entering Saturday shows. While they've been strong at night, for whatever reason, the B's haven't been able to translate early start times into too many points in the standings. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette looked to our Twitter followers for some guesses about why the B's struggle during the day. See what they had to say in the above video.

Bruins' Early Struggles Continue to Prove Costly As Boston Drops Another Matinee Against Capitals

BOSTON – With a mediocre 12-13-2 mark over the last two months, it could be argued that this Bruins team hasn't exactly looked ready for prime time of late.

RECAP: Bruins outplay & outdumb Capitals. Bruins lose.

Ty Anderson: Boston comeback gets stonewalled by Vokoun and Caps

Just over eight and a half minutes into play, the Boston Bruins were an unmitigated disaster of a hockey club. Trailing 2-0, out-shot by the Washington Capitals 12 to 3 and an utter mess in their own end, Claude Julien opted to take his timeout in what was pure deja-vu from Sunday's loss in New York.
