Capitals 4, Bruins 3 (OT)
Hitting the nitty-gritty part of their compressed schedule, the Bruins were forced to forget about their disappointing loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Boston on Sunday and get ready for Tuesday’s meeting with the Washington Capitals in D.C., the first time the two teams have met since last year’s Stanley Cup quarterfinals.
The Caps had the B’s number in 2012, winning three out of four in the regular season and bouncing the reigning Stanley Cup Champions in seven games of the opening round of the playoffs.
It might be safe to say that a lot of Bruins players still had the sour taste of the Joel Ward overtime game-winner that sent them packing last year still lingering in their mouth, as they were able to put together one of their best opening periods as a team this season.

Overshadowed by Claude Julien‘s postgame “embellishment” comments on Sunday...
The Bruins have been so darn good at putting together comebacks that they already have a handful of “good losses,” whatever that really means. They did the inverse of that on Tuesday night in Washington in what can’t be labeled as anything but a horrible loss.
It may have been the worst Bruins loss of the season given the B’s stranglehold through 20 minutes. The Bruins saw...
Circle March 27 on your calendars.
That’s the next time the Bruins and Canadiens meet on the ice, and after comments made by both sides over the last two days, it’s sure to be a heated affair.
On Monday, members of the Habs responded to claims made by Bruins coach Claude Julien that Montreal skaters commonly embellish penalties to draw calls from the referees.
The Habs give their take on Claude Julien’s comments and look towards their match-up with the Islanders.
Claude Julien may have had a few choice words for the Habs after Sunday night’s game in Boston, but as far as the Canadiens are concerned, that just means they’re doing their job. When asked about some of Julien’s less-than-flattering comments...
When Adam Morrison fell to the floor in tears after a 2006 Elite Eight loss to UCLA, I knew what he knew – there was no return in order. The Bruins erased a nine-point deficit in less than four minutes to win. Gonzaga had incredibly missed out on a trip to the Final Four.

The last time these two teams played, seventh-seeded Washington celebrated Joel Ward's overtime goal that gave it a 2-1 victory in Game 7 of their...
There are moral victories, there are actual victories and then there’s what happened on Tuesday night, which was neither.
The Bruins let a three-goal lead slip away against the Capitals, losing 4-3 in overtime at the Verizon Center. On the heels of a tough loss to the Canadiens, this was a decidedly bad loss — and the spectacular nature of the winning goal doesn’t do much to...
Instead of a hot streak ending with the Bruins atop the Eastern Conference standings, the Montreal Canadiens stopped the B’s cold.
Couple that with a stomach-punch loss to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night, and all of a sudden the Bruins are now being looked at in a much different light than they were a mere 72 hours ago. While two straight losses is nothing to press the...
