It’s hard to forget the shellacking the Boston Bruins were dealt by the Washington Capitals on opening night in Washington D.C.
The Bruins have come a long way since that 7-0 drubbing against the defending Stanley Cup champions, but there always seems to be a little bit more on the line whenever the B’s take on the Caps.
Perhaps it’s the recent track record. Washington is 10-0-3 in its last 13 contests against the Bruins. But the Black and Gold are riding a five-game winning streak entering Thursday night’s contest at TD Garden, and it seems like Boston has its eyes set on turning the tables on a team that has given them trouble.
