Highlights: Bruins fall flat in Columbus, lose 7-4

They made it close, but...yeah.

NHL: Boston Bruins at Columbus Blue Jackets Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

Why do you want to watch these? I’m not sure, but here we go!

Patrice Bergeron gets things off to a decent start with a shorthanded goal. Hey, this game is looking pretty good! 1-0 Bruins

Annnnnnnd it’s gone. The breakdowns begin, and Josh Anderson capitalizes. 1-1 tie

Remember those breakdowns? Who was covering Ryan Dzingel here? Was it you? Was it me? Are there any horse socks? 2-1 Columbus

The Bruins had a 5v3 power play toward the end of the first period, but did worse than nothing with it: the gave up a goal with 5 seconds left. 3-1 Columbus

This was actually a pretty great pass from behind the net, but the coverage left something to be desired. Matt Duchene capitalized. 4-1 Columbus

Again, with the coverage issues. Yikes! Jenner again, and it’s 5-1 Columbus.

The Bruins show some life, with Brad Marchand winning a battle for positioning in front and tapping home a loose puck. 5-2 Columbus

Charlie McAvoy and Artemi Panarin got in a fight, which was pretty surprising.

Walpole Wagner strikes again, this time off a great play by Danton Heinen. All of a sudden, it’s just 5-3 Columbus.

Brad Marchand would get the Bruins within a goal with around 90 seconds left in the second, and it was 5-4 Columbus. How? DETERMINATION, FOLKS.

We don’t have that highlight, but it was nice.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough. The Bruins had a power play midway through the third, but lost the latter half of it when Danton Heinen was called for a brutal hooking penalty. Shortly thereafter, Zach Werenski put home the dagger. 6-4 Columbus

Boone Jenner would add an empty-netter to earn himself a hat trick, and that was that! The Bruins end up taking a 7-4 loss, their second loss in as many games.

Winnipeg is up next!

Everyone was bad tonight, with pretty much no exceptions.
