NHL: Boston Bruins at Washington Capitals
This was just about the only fight the Bruins could muster. (Brad Marchand grapples with Lars Eller)

The Bruins visit the Sabres tonight in Buffalo on NESN at 7:00PM. Last night never happened.

  • The Capitals came to play, as did Jaroslav Halak. The rest of the Bruins? Not so much. Boston Globe
  • The party just kept rolling for Washington, after a summer of Stanley Cup celebrations. Boston Herald
  • Two goals in under two minutes of game action were followed by three more, prompting the hook for Tuukka Rask just under eight minutes into the second period. WEEI
  • Highly unusual was Patrice Bergeron being on ice for a quintet of the seven goals against, three of which were while he was on the penalty kill. Boston.com
  • How? How could this have happened? Four good reasons. Yahoo Sports
  • A final (seventh) unanswered goal triggered Brad Marchand to fight a gloating Lars Eller. You might say that he got his licks in. NBC Sports
  • Cheer up for two reasons, one of which was the play of John Moore. HockeyBuzz
  • Anyway, on to Buffalo. The Sabres have a new captain. With all the mess last night, will Halak start for the Bruins as planned? Fox Sports
