Bruins' Skid Hits Three After Loss to Hurricanes

Boston in the midst of first losing streak of season after 4-1 setback in Carolina

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

RALEIGH - The Bruins knew they would hit some adversity - even though for the season's first four months, it might not have felt like it. After avoiding consecutive losses through their 48th game of the season, the Black & Gold have now lost three straight games following a 4-1 setback to the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday at PNC Arena.

"We talked about facing adversity at some point in the year and here we are," said Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron. "We have to face that as a team together and roll up our sleeves and learn from what hasn't been there the last few games."

Bruins Fall to Panthers in OT, Suffer First Back-to-Back Losses

Boston surrendered late tying goal before allowing the winner just seconds into extra time

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

SUNRISE, Fla. - In a season of impressive feats, one of the Bruins' most notable achievements was that they had avoided consecutive losses well past the halfway mark of the 2022-23 campaign. But in their 49th game of the year, that streak ended - quite abruptly - as Boston surrendered three different one-goal leads en route to a 4-3 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers on Saturday night at FLA Live Arena.

David Pastrnak gave the Bruins the lead with just 48 seconds remaining when he tallied his 38th goal of the season, but the Black & Gold failed to hang on as they allowed the tying goal to Aleksander Barkov with 3 seconds to go in regulation. Sam Reinhart then won it for Florida only 17 seconds into the extra session to hand the Bruins their second straight loss after the club's 3-2 setback in Tampa on Thursday night.

Bruins Drop Back-and-Forth Battle in Tampa

Boston falls 3-2 to Lightning in second game of road trip

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

TAMPA - Brad Marchand and Pavel Zacha scored but the Bruins fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning, 3-2, on Thursday night at Amalie Arena in what felt like a primer for the postseason. Victor Hedman notched the winner for Tampa with 6:41 remaining on a bizarre play in which Brandon Carlo collided with Linus Ullmark, knocking the netminder to the ice, which allowed the Tampa blue liner to have somewhat of an empty net in which to blast home a one-timer from the left-wing boards.

"We know every team is gonna give us their best now," said David Krejci. "They look at us as a statement game. We talk about it a lot, we try to get ready for every game. Today was tough. It's gonna be tough. They're a good team. I thought we played solid road hockey, it just wasn't good enough."

Hall to bump up to top line as Boston visits Bolts in Tampa

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

TAMPA - Notable lineup changes have been few and far between so far this season for the Bruins, but they'll have one on Thursday night against the Lightning. Coach Jim Montgomery said following an optional morning skate at Amalie Arena that he is opting to bump Taylor Hall up to the top line to play the right wing with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron as Boston's road trip rolls on.

"Just want to see it," said Montgomery, who will also reunite Trent Frederic, Charlie Coyle, and Craig Smith on the third line. "It's something we haven't tried. We're always looking at different ways to see if we can use people different ways to just better ourselves. That's what we're gonna do there and give him the opportunity. I've never seen him on his right wing."

Bruins Prevail Against Habs as Rivalry Renews in Montreal

Bergeron's late tally proves to be the winner in Boston's 4-2 victory

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

MONTREAL - No one would say that the Bruins-Canadiens rivalry is at its peak.

The teams are at opposite ends of the Atlantic Division standings and haven't met in the postseason in nearly a decade. But for the players on both sides of this longtime conflict, it rarely matters the circumstance and setting when the two foes square off.

That much was evident on Tuesday night as Boston and Montreal did battle for the first time this season.

The longtime rivals are set for their first meeting of the season

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

MONTREAL - Jim Montgomery admits that back in the day he was rooting hard against the boys in Black & Gold. As a Montreal native, Montgomery was all in on the Canadiens, attending a game or two a year at the old Montreal Forum.

"My best memory was the [1976] Finals, I got to go to Game 1," Montgomery recalled. "Guy Lapointe scored the game-winning goal to win, 4-3, against the Flyers with about four minutes left."

Bruins' Blue Line Outburst Continues in Win Over Sharks

McAvoy, Lindholm score as Boston cruises to another home victory

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins defense corps was wondering how they stacked up.

During their morning meeting ahead of their matchup against the Seattle Kraken earlier this month, assistant coach John Gruden told his charges that while their opponent ranked near the top of the league in goals scored by their defensemen, the Bruins were planted squarely in the middle of the pack.

It was a ranking that did not sit well with Boston's blue liners.
