Bruins 4, Capitals 1: Boston Snaps Two-Game Skid In Washington

Boston avoided just its second three-game losing streak of the year with a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday afternoon at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Washington, D.C.

Each of Boston's leading scorers netted goals for the Black and Gold as the Bruins won for just the second time in their last five games, avenging a 5-3 defeat at Washington just two weeks earlier.

Milan Lucic got the scoring started early for Boston and Brad Marchand followed up later in the first period. The goals were the 19th for each Boston forward, but the team leader quickly earned back the top spot when Tyler Seguin netted his 20th goal at 6:38 of the third period.

The Capitals, already playing shorthanded without Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom, also lost Brooks Laich to a lover-body injury and Dimitry Orlov when he took a Shawn Thornton wrist shot to the face.

Boston next plays Buffalo on Tuesday night.
