Bruins Iced By Avs 4-3

The Boston Bruins will end their home stand with a record of 2-3 after a disappointing loss to the Colorado Avalanche. Mark Recchi, Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder all put the puck in the net for Boston as they did not maintain a lead at all today.

After the Bruins tied the game at 2 goals a piece, David Jones capitalized on what seemed to be a Bruins line-change mistake and found himself with a breakaway on Tuukka Rask, which he put in top shelf.

The Bruins played some good hockey, despite the score. They were down 2-0 before Recchi and Wheeler tied the game up, but once Colorado went up 4-2, it was a hill to steep to climb.


The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good

The second line of Wheeler, Krejci and Ryder played extremely well tonight. The line garnered 5 points tonight and was their best line of the night, which is a change of pace because the fourth line of Bitz, Thornton and Begin have been the best on the season.

The Bad

The defense looked confused and were not set for most of the game. The speed of the Avalanche kept the Bruins defensemen scrambling. Andrew Ference and Matt Hunwick played extremely poorly tonight, especially with the David Jones breakaway.

The Ugly

The Bruins specialty teams are anything but special. The power play was once again miserable as the Bruins went 0 for 5 on the man advantage. Also, the Bruins went 0-2 on the PK and now are an eye-popping 8 for 25 on the PK in this young season.

Stat of the day:

The Bruins are 0-16 on the PP in their last 3 games.
