BOSTON — The Los Angeles Kings outscored the Bruins 3-2 in the shootout, and the Bruins matched their longest losing streak in nearly 13 years with a 3-2 loss at TD Garden. The Bruins also have lost six straight home games, their longest drought since the 1924-25 team dropped 11 straight home games.

BOSTON -- With the Bruins languishing with an NHL-low 128 goals, Marco Sturm returned to action on Saturday night after missing six games with a leg injury and scored his team-leading 16th goal of the season.

Thornton, with just one goal in 50 games, and Sobotka (4g, 3a in 43 games) have been very disappointing in their production as forwards and the Bruins are in desperate need of a jump-start to their offense.

When asked about potential additions to the team's bullpen, Friday, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said "We can always add depth and create competition in spots. There is already some competition. With the numbers in the pen, we have to whittle it down. We’re always on the lookout for more additions if they...
