TD Garden- After playing a solid sixty minute effort last Saturday verses the Hurricanes the Bruins were hoping the momentum would carry into Thursday's battle with the Ducks. First period the Bruins would shoot at all costs but it was Anaheim Hiller that would not give the Bruins any easy goals. But that would change with just under five minutes left in the period Marco Sturm would slip a shot past Hiller giving the Bruins a 1-0 lead into the locker room. Into the second period Bruins up 1-0 and this game would start to slip away. Boston would give Anaheim two powerplays and they would connect on both taking a 2-1 lead. Then the Ducks would connect again on a shorthanded goal and it would be 3-1 Ducks going into the 3rd. The Bruins had a bit of work to do if they wanted to extend there winning streak. This game would just get worse for the black and gold as the ducks cashed in 3 more goals making it a 6-1 game. Ducks would get two goals from Selanne and two goals from Perry. Also Bobby Ryan and Evgeny Artyukhin would score. The Bruins looking like they did back on October 1st VS the Capitals not much intensity slow to the puck and no connections on the powerplay. The team is hoping that this was just a bad night and that they can pull themselves together before Saturday's tilt vs the Islanders.
