Bruins' Comeback Falls Short in Pittsburgh

Boston's three-game win streak comes to an end with 5-3 setback

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

PITTSBURGH - Momentum can be a funny thing.

Just when the Bruins thought they had seized control on Friday night in Pittsburgh, surging back from a two-goal deficit to tie the game midway through the third period, one bad sequence had them chasing once again - and for good.

An icing call, a lost defensive zone faceoff, and a textbook deflection doomed the Bruins, whose three-game winning streak came to an end with a 5-3 setback to the Penguins at PPG Paints Arena.

Backes 'No Worse for Wear' After Skate Scare

Forward took Ekman-Larsson's blade to the nose in B's win over Arizona

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - David Backes has not had the best of luck over the past two seasons.

Last November, the veteran forward missed roughly a month - some four weeks less than expected - following colon surgery related to a bout of diverticulitis. Then in March, Backes required 18 stitches to close a wound in his leg after being nicked by the skate of Tampa Bay forward Yanni Gourde.

As a result, Backes - who also suffered a concussion in the Bruins' final game of the postseason, courtesy of a high hit from the Lightning's J.T. Miller - was Boston's 2018 nominee for the Masterton Trophy, awarded annually to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.

Krejci Connecting With Bruins Top Line

Center, playing with Marchand and Pastrnak, notches three assists in 800th career game

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand are goal scorers, plain and simple. Get them the puck and most of the time they'll take care of the rest.

Patrice Bergeron - a gifted scorer in his own right - knows this as well as anybody. But with the Bruins' No. 1 center sidelined by injury, Boston's top wingers needed someone to help them navigate through the extended absence of their partner in crime.

In an effort to balance his offense, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy was hesitant to load up his top trio by adding David Krejci to the mix. But an injury to Jake DeBrusk, which has caused him to miss the last three games, opened up an opportunity to play his best three offensive players together.

Need to Know: Bruins vs. Coyotes

DeBrusk still sidelined as Boston looks for third straight win

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins welcome the Arizona Coyotes to TD Garden on Tuesday night in search of their third straight victory. Boston is coming off a 4-point weekend, courtesy of wins of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, and will be looking to continue that momentum back on home ice.

"We had a couple pretty good games, but we can't get caught up in that," said Brad Marchand. "We had a tough one in Florida, even the Tampa game I thought we played pretty well. I think it's a really good team. We have to keep it going, we can't get caught up in a couple wins. We need to make sure we continue to do things the way that allowed us to play well the last couple games.

"We're gonna go through stints where we're really good and times where we're not. It's about how we rebound from every game. We can't get caught up in those games and let them go and focus on having another good one tonight."
