The Boston Bruins played well enough to win Thursday night, but the two points went to the other side.

Despite outshooting the Washington Capitals by a 41-22 margin, the Bruins fell to the defending Stanley Cup champions 4-2 at TD Garden.

While there are no moral victories in the NHL, there were a number of positive takeaways for the B’s from their latest tilt. After the game, head coach Bruce Cassidy pinpointed what he liked from his club against the Caps.
