Bruins Vs. Capitals Final: B's Fall Short On Home Ice As Caps Come Through With 4-3 Road Victory

On Saturday afternoon, the Boston bruins were unable to improve on their recent two-game winning streak when they fell 4-3 to the Washington Capitals on home-ice at the TD Garden.

The Caps jumped out to an early 2-0 advantage after a pair of quick goals from Alex Semin and former Bruins' prospect Matt Hendricks. Boston bench boss Claude Julien opted to take his timeout after the second Washington tally, in hopes of reversing his team's fortunes.

The B's would use a solid effort towards the end of the first and early in the second to even the score thanks to the 23rd goal of the season for both Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand.

However, some ill-advised penalties and defensive lapses would doom the Bruins from then on. The Caps would quickly add two more to the score sheet before the teams went to the rooms for the second intermission, courtesy of markers from fourth line pivot Jay Beagle and dependable centerman Brooks Laich.

Boston would answer back with 3:13 to play in the game when Johnny Boychuk pushed home a rebound to get the B's back to within a goal.

Unfortunately, the B's could not come through with a tying tally in the game's final moments.
