Game 68: A New Streak

The Bruins are on yet another streak. Although this time around, they are now riding a four game losing streak with a loss tonight in New York to the Islanders. This was a team that was a victim on the Bruins recent six game win streak.

Nathan Horton scored the first goal of the game yet again when Milan Lucic and David Krejci set up Horton for the shot. This was Horton's 20th of the season. Zdeno Chara put in a power play goal later on in the game to put the Bruins on top 2-0.

Bruins fans witnessed history repeat itself on back-to-back nights when Boston once again blew a two goal lead. The Islanders scored three unanswered goals in the final two periods. They later added an empty night goal to ice the game. The final score was Islanders 4, Bruins 2.

Gold Star: David Krejci (2 assists, even, 50% face-offs won)

Black Star: Matt Bartkowski...he was only on the ice for eight shifts for just under five minutes of playing time. In that time he ends up in the penalty box. Why bother dressing six defensemen?

Not much to write about tonight. Very disappointing streak of games the Bruins are putting together. They need to get some momentum heading into the last couple of weeks of the season. Although that is probably the best time to catch fire: heading into the playoffs.
