BOSTON - One streak dies and another one lives on.
The Bruins had their five-game winning streak snapped on Thursday night with a 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, thus extending their losing skid against the Caps to 14 games.
Boston outplayed the defending Stanley Cup champions for large portions of the game, outshooting them 41-22, but some quick-response strikes from the Capitals left the Bruins chasing.
"I thought we certainly gave ourselves a chance to win the game, didn't happen again against this team," said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy. "Have to get over that hurdle - a lot of nights that would be good enough for points, if not two points, but not tonight."
