The Boston Bruins might’ve breathed a sigh of relief after the Washington Capitals downed Pittsburgh, 6-3, Wednesday.
The Bruins, who have to face Washington Saturday at the Verizon Center, couldn’t have been encouraged much by superstar Alexander Ovechkin breaking out of a four-game goal drought with two scores. But at least the Bruins can take solace in the fact that he won’t be waiting to bust out against them.
Saturday, the Bruins will have their hands full whether Ovechkin is hot, cold or mildly chilled. Remember, Washington won the only previous meeting between the two teams.
