Caps at Bruins pregame A brush in Boston By Elyse Bailey

It's perhaps the only practical conclusion one can come to after Thursday's effort, which saw the Bruins score, but nearly immediately fall victim to quick response goals in what finished as a 4-2 loss on TD Garden ice. The Washington Capitals, who are defending Stanley Cup Champions, have a record of 26-12-4 and now sit at the 1 spot position in the Metro Division; Boston is in 3 in the Atlantic, still two points behind Toronto. The win last night was Washington's 14th straight over Boston, and this loss was particularly frustrating for the Black and Gold for the effort they showed inn twice tying up the game, only to hand the lead back to the Caps while the PA announcer was still announcing the details of the tying goal. Didn't happen again against this team.

The good times continue for the Castleton Spartans women's basketball team, now winners of seven straight games after a 57-45 overtime win at Keene State last night. He chased a puck into the offensive zone and got there quick enough to ram into Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara.

The Bruins were not done, though, and answered once more on a David Krejci slapper that beat Holtby upstairs 4:37 into the third period. "I feel like they're way more physical at home than maybe on the road".

The power trio of Bergeron, Marchand and Pastrnak has a combined to score 55 goals in 43 games. This contest will be Boston's final game of their current five-game homestand. "That's the bottom line", Halak said. "You know, I think we've had success against them, but they've always been good games".

Washington led 1-0 after the first period despite being outshot 17-5. T.J. Oshie grabbed a giveaway by the Bruins and flipped the puck from the Capitals' end to a wide-open Vrana, who beat Halak with 13:22 to play.

His estranged daughter Buku Abi, meanwhile, condemned her father as "a monster" in a statement issued via Instagram. Kelly performs in concert at Barclays Center on September 25, 2015 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

Washington nursed that 1-0 lead until the latter stages of the second, weathering a couple more Boston power plays in the process, until Boston's Ryan Donato tied the game at 1-1 with a drive from the right circle at 14:11 of the second. Eller, whose celebration in front of the Boston bench after scoring the Capitals' seventh goal in the opener drew postgame criticism from Marchand, was sent to the penalty box for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Ovechkin scored into an empty net with 1:35 left to seal the victory. He participated fully in Wednesday's practice and could return for Saturday's game against Toronto.

Braden Holtby started his career with a win over the Boston Bruins in his National Hockey League debut a little over eight years ago, and he has continued to vex the Beantowners ever since.
