MONTREAL -- These were not the Boston Bruins who won 12 games in a row and earned a point in the standings in 16 straight games during a historic March.
Well, the personnel was the same, the uniforms were the same, but the Bruins who are down 2-1 in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Montreal Canadiens are playing a completely different type of hockey.
The Bruins are playing mistake-riddled hockey.
After losing 4-2 in Game 3 on Tuesday at Bell Centre, the Bruins will try to right themselves in Game 4 on Thursday in the same rink (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS).
They'll try to snap a streak of three straight games during which they have fallen behind by at least two goals. They were able to force double overtime before losing Game 1 then won Game 2 with a four-goal third period.
