WASHINGTON (AP) – David Krejci and Milan Lucic each had a goal
and an assist in the first period, and the Boston Bruins snapped
the Washington Capitals' four-game winning streak with a 3-1
victory Tuesday night.
Matt Hunwick added a goal, and Tim Thomas made 35 saves to
improve to 3-0 for the Bruins, who held Alex Ovechkin without a
point for the first time in the young season.
Rookie Marcus Johansson scored the lone goal for the Capitals,
whose high-powered offense has yet to catch stride – even as their
penalty kill remains perfect. Washington held Boston scoreless on
four power plays, leaving opponents 0 for 25 through six games.
The Bruins scored twice on Michal Neuvirth before the Capitals
goaltender left the game in the first period because of illness.
Semyon Varlamov came on in relief and stopped 13 of 14 shots.
