The Bruins' 19-game point streak (second longest in franchise history) came to an end on Sunday, as they lost 4-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena.
It was the Bruins' first regulation loss since January 19, putting an end to their 15-0-4 run.
David Krejci (19th) and John Moore (4th) scored for the Bruins. For Krejci, he made a bit of personal history:
Boston was unable to start a new point streak last night (Tuesday), as the Columbus Blue Jackets came up with a 7-4 win at Nationwide Arena.
After trailing 5-1 not even halfway into the second period, the Bruins scored three goals prior to the end of the period to pull within a goal. Boston was unable to complete the comeback though, as the Jackets scored on the power-play with 7:39 to go before an empty-netter in the final minute to seal the win.
Boone Jenner recorded his first career hat trick for Columbus, notching the Jackets' third, fifth, and seventh goals on the night; Jenner now has 15 goals this season.
Patrice Bergeron (26th), Brad Marchand (29th, 30th), and Chris Wagner (12th) accounted for Boston's goals.
With 6:39 remaining in the second period, Charlie McAvoy and Artemi Panarin got into a pretty solid tilt:
Advantage: McAvoy. For both contestants, this was their second career NHL fight and first for Panarin since November 2016; McAvoy last fought in December 2017.
The Bruins (42-19-9) travel to Winnipeg to play the Jets (40-25-4) tomorrow before returning home on Saturday night for another match against Columbus.
