No way to sugarcoat this - The Caps are the Bruins daddy.

Last win against them was March 29, 2014.

Tuukka is clearly overworked.

Our bottom 6 is weak. I dont know what else to say

On a positive note they have hit Holtby for back to back 3 goal games. A far cry from last season.

They played a good 40 minutes only to be undone by the questionable call on Carlo.

The bottom 6 forwards are a dead zone offensively.

Now we know why Patrick Roy quit. He knew he had no talent.

Finally saw Sweeney when camera caught them upstairs .He is alive ..lol Bruins fought but sadly lack scoring depth and are thin on backend skill wise .Still proud of fight they put in tonite vs a high end team on road. NHL needs to address the Ref 60 feet away deciding games too.

People say Bottom 6 is the only problem. No, its the bottom 9 really. I don't think there has been one game this season where the second line was dominate on the ice all game long. The first line is the only one that can flat out dominate games. The rest...nope.

Rask is a good goalie, but he needs to be rested. I hate the fact that he had to take part in the all-star game...the Bruins really should have made some excuse. Tuuka has been poor of late.

That's on Don Sweeney.He has failed 2 straight years to find a quality backup to depend on.Rask is worked like a dog ..

4-6 in the last ten games. Just don't do anything stupid and buy at the deadline. If Rask is starting to burn out this team will be in the dumps soon.

To be expected. The Caps give us problems and there was no way they were going to lose 2 in a row and at home to boot. Time to rest up and get ready for the Leafs.

What's the reason ? DK's inconsistency and Backes isn't quite the player we thought he would be ? Vatrano is still finding his way as a professional hockey player , it's not on him .

Having watched Krug closely tonight, I would have to say that those who think he is overvalued are out to lunch. He is so good at advancing the puck that he barely has to defend. His positioning is tremendous, and he makes great decisions/reads all over the ice. He made several seeing eye passes today that could have resulted in goals. He is really good.

I was not expecting the team to go 32W over the final 32 games.

They have 3 of the last 4 in the win column and need a big win over the Leafs on Saturday as they start a 4 game home stand lasting 12 days.

Let's hope that Patrice is good to go on Saturday.

The Miller boys didn't look too good tonight against better competition.

Thank goodness for that awesome power play.

B's are really picking up the scoring. And guess what's happening at the other end? Well, its more entertaining.

Just square pegs and round holes with Krejci and Backes. They just have no chemistry. Vatrano should be a third liner on a good team

Great Rask pulled his groin
