    :bruins:caps

    Boston has won five games in a row and is hoping to end a long string of frustration against the Washington Capitals in a home game Thursday night.

    Washington (26-12-4) has won two in a row and is coming off a 5-3 victory over the slumping Philadelphia Flyers, which was their eighth straight loss. Washington beat Detroit on Sunday, which ended a three-game skid for the defending champions.

    The Capitals are 10-0-3 in their past 13 games against Boston, including a 7-0 home win to open this season.

    Jakub Vrana, who had two goals and one assist in the victory, is having a breakout season. The speedy winger ranks second on the team with 14 goals (he finished with 13 in 73 games last season). Plus he has registered 24 points -- three away from his career best of 27, set last season.

    He's likely going to go far past that this season. Vrana's speed has helped him on numerous occasions, including in Tuesday's game when he poked a puck away from Claude Giroux near the Washington blue line and broke in alone on goalie Mike McKenna for a score.

    "You can't always go so fast," Vrana said on NHL.com. "You have to read the situation. Obviously, I try to use as much as I can. When I see the chance to skate, I do it. I think I'm a good skater, and I just try to use it as much as I can."

    If Vrana becomes a full-blown goal scorer, that adds to an already powerful Washington offense, which is getting great seasons from Alex Ovechkin, Tom Wilson, Evgeny Kuznetsov and others. Veteran T.J. Oshie even scored twice in the win over the Flyers to reach the 200-goal milestone.
    The Capitals will hope to get back Nicklas Backstrom, who was held out due to being under the weather. The center is second on the team with 44 points.

    But the Capitals will be facing a hot Boston team that improved to 25-14-4 after a 4-0 victory over Minnesota on Tuesday. Goalie Tuukka Rask notched his first shutout this season and the 42nd of his 12-year career. He has now won 250 games with Boston, needing three more victories to become first in team history for wins.

    "It's 250 wins ... 250 more to go, I guess," Rask said after the game with a grin. "No ... been lucky enough to be part of good teams, and that's pretty much what it comes down to, I think."

    Still, Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said after that game that he is thinking hard about letting Jaroslav Halak start in goal. Halak has tormented Washington at times in the past, and this would be his first start versus the Capitals with the Bruins.

    In the win over Minnesota, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand each posted three points. The Bruins have scored 19 goals in their five-game winning streak.

    Boston got some luck with strange bounces on most of the goals in the Minnesota game, and the Bruins want some more of that against Washington to help end the skid against the Caps.

    Time for the Bruins to kick that squatter Holtby out of their heads. He can be lit up, he has been, I've seen it happen, just not by the Bruins. This is the game for that to happen!

    Well based on the numbers, bruins need to move fast and deliberate in the offensive zone and draw some penalties. Get em to hook and haul ya down and make em pay shorthanded

    Caps come in overconfident tonight based on their past record against the B's.

    The B's put up a six pack and blow the doors off of them crushing their spirits tonight.

    No worries

    We got this

    Not gonna lie, i'm still worried

    But at some point sooner or later a game like this feeds a team of youngsters. You gotta hope a game like this brings out the anger and nastiness in guys like Carlo, Heinen, Debrusk, Kuraly, Donato, etc.

    Here's to hoping that for every hard hit the Caps throw, Wagner throws one right back at them

    I'm taking Ladyfan's advice and am bringing positive vibes for tonight. The Bruins are fully capable of snapping this ridiculous losing streak against the Caps. The B's are rolling and now is the time - revenge for the 7-0 thrashing in the season opener. Get it done Bruins!!!

    GO BRUINS!!!

    Well if the pattern sticks, the boys should be all set to break this stupid record. I just got switched from the clinic that is a mile away from my house to the one that is 12 miles away. By the time I get home tonight game will be over or only have a couple minutes left.

    Lets go B's, beat this friggin team in your barn tonighT!

    I was thinking that too. It’s the time of year teams are starting to separate from the pack. Guys start laying it on a little heavier.

    Also the time of year we usually see a few shenanigan filled games which are always entertaining.
