Loss to Devils = New Streak

The Boston Bruins fell to the New Jersey Devils 1-0 last night in regulation.

The loss marks only the second time this season that Boston has suffered a three-game losing streak. It hasn't since the end of October.

Tough to say what went wrong against New Jersey. The effort was certainly there, but the B's couldn't finish in the end. The Devils potted one soft goal, and that made all the difference.

The power play remains one of the B's biggest problems. They desperately need a left-handed shot on the first unit, seeing as Marco Sturm remains out for the season. The sooner they acquire someone to fulfill that role, the better.

I'll tell you one thing -- I wouldn't want Boston to meet up with the Devils in the post-season.
