The Boston Bruins were victimized by poor special teams and a weak offense Saturday night.

The Bruins allowed two power-play goals to the Washington Capitals and failed to find the net in a 4-0 loss at TD Garden. It’s the first time the team has lost back-to-back games in regulation since January 7 and 9 during the 2013-14 regular season.

After the game, head coach Claude Julien cited the Capitals’ early goals and Boston’s failure to respond as some of the takeaways from the loss.

“We seemed to be a little off out there at times tonight,” Julien told NESN’s Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley. “… It’s hard to play catch-up in this league, and we dug ourselves a hole; we just couldn’t get out of it.”
