Bad history: B's lose 8th straight

BOSTON  --  Brooks Laich and Boyd Gordon scored less than three minutes apart midway through the third period to lead the Washington Capitals over the Bruins, 4-1, Tuesday night at TD Garden. It was the eighth straight loss for the Bruins, their longest losing skid in 54 seasons, when the team dropped eight in a row between Dec. 22, 1955-Jan. 12, 1956. It was also their seventh straight home loss, the longest since dropping 11 in a row Dec. 1924-Feb. 1925. David Krejci's 10th of the season on the power play gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the first period. But former Bruin Mike Knuble led the comeback with the equalizer in the second. Alex Ovechkin capped off the scoring with an empty net goal. The Capitals, meanwhile, are streaking in the other direction. They set a new franchise record with their 11th straight win, the longest in the NHL since San Jose won 11 in a row two seasons ago. For more, visit the...
