SNAPPED: Bruins Win Streak Comes to Abrupt End

Published January 25, 2024 at 7:39
The Boston Bruins concluded their five-game homestand with a 3-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes at TD Garden. The defeat brings the Bruins' season record to 29-9-9, while the Hurricanes improve to 26-15-5. Despite the setback, Brad Marchand emerged as a standout player for the Bruins in the third period, scoring two goals to tie the game at two, but the comeback fell short when Jordan Martinook netted the game-winner for the Hurricanes.

In the first 40 minutes of the game, the Hurricanes effectively disrupted the Bruins' passes, preventing sustained pressure in the offensive zone. The Hurricanes secured a 2-0 lead with power-play goals by the second intermission.

Head coach Jim Montgomery's line adjustments sparked Marchand's impressive performance in the third period, but it wasn't enough to secure the win. Marchand's two goals elevated him to fifth place overall, tying with Bruins legend Ray Bourque at 395 career goals. Additionally, Trent Frederic contributed to both of Marchand's goals, marking his sixth multi-point game of the season, while Martinook scored the decisive game-winner for the Hurricanes, his seventh goal of the season.
