Bruins' incredible streak halted by Kraken

Bruins’incredible streak halted by Kraken


For the first time this season, the Boston Bruins lost their flag in regulation time at TD Garden. The Seattle Kraken won 3-0 with another strong performance from Martin Jones on Thursday. 

The 33-year-old goaltender shut out a second Atlantic Division squad away, after frustrating the Montreal Canadiens 21 times on Monday. This time, he stood like a wall against the hosts' 27 attempts.

The Bruins, who were 19-0-3 at home before the day's game, suffered a first shutout loss this season.

The Kraken struck at each of the engagements to prevail. Brandon Tanev opened the scoring by deflecting a shot from a tight angle in the first period, then Eeli Tolvanen and Jaden Schwartz added their two cents before the duel concluded.

Tolvanen proved to be a real flight for the Washington State team. Since being waived by the Nashville Predators, the Finnish winger has four goals and six points in seven games.

The Bettman League's youngest organization is riding a six-game winning streak , five of which came against Eastern Conference teams.

No answer without Matthews

Auston Matthews' absence in Detroit hurt the Toronto Maple Leafs, who lost 4-1 to the Red Wings .

Kept out for a second game in a row with an undisclosed injury, Matthews watched his teammates come up against a Ville Husso in full possession of his means.

Only defender Rasmus Sandin deceived his vigilance with a shot that ricocheted off Dylan Larkin's stick.

The Red Wings captain recovered in a good way by setting the stage for Lucas's goals Raymond and Ben Chiarot. The former CH player shook the ropes of an abandoned cage at the end of the match.

With just 20 seconds left in the encounter, youngster Moritz Seider completed the scoring with a laser from the blue line. The bad luck of the second year also seems to have the German defender, who has only 18 points in 40 games after having accumulated 50 last campaign.

Ilya Samsonov had much better evenings in front of the Toronto cage. He made only 19 saves, against 32 for his vis-à-vis.

The Jets win again

In Buffalo, the Winnipeg Jets posted their sixth victory in their last seven games, beating the Sabers 4-2 thanks to 39 saves from Connor Hellebuyck.

The goaltender was solid throughout the game, which allowed Kyle Connor to take over the end of the game. The sniper came completely alone against Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen on a good delivery from Nikolaj Ehlers. Connor played a superb fake to the Finnish goalkeeper to give the Jets the lead.

Karson Kuhlman then closed the books in an empty net, on a pass from Connor. Josh Morrissey and Dylan Samberg also shook the ropes for the visitors.

This is a third straight loss, each time at KeyBank Center, for the Sabers.
