The Boston Bruins lost sight of Jakub Vrana on Thursday night, and the young forward made them pay.
Vrana’s drift into the neutral zone helped the Washington Capitals grab an early lead over the B’s at TD Garden. After Nicklas Backstrom initially failed to find Vrana, the 22-year-old stayed near center ice and eventually received a pass from T.J. Oshie. Vrana finished the job by beating Jaroslav Halak on a breakaway.
