Preview:

This is the first time the Bruins will face the Capitals in Boston since the game seven loss eleven months ago. Let's beat a dead horse and just lay it all out: the Bruins need to not play poorly with a lead, they need the second line to start producing, and they need to play the full 60 instead of sitting back in the first period. That's IT.

Never forget:

This sucked.
