The Bruins have struggled away from Boston, losing all three games on the road.

A quick return home before a four-game road trip offers the opportunity for them to get back on track and end the season strong.

Before the recent road trip, the Bruins were 15-0-4 and in the middle of a 19-game point streak– the second longest in team history.

During their recent slide, the Bruins have started slowly, being outscored in the first period 7-2. Head coach Bruce Cassidy acknowledged this saying, “Other teams are taking it to us. They clearly have more energy early on.”

While a three-game losing streak is concerning, the Bruins are one of five teams with six or more players on the injury report. The Bruins also have the highest winning percentage in that group and are one of three teams above .500.

The recent losses can also be attributed to facing a stretch of three playoff-caliber teams who are all averaging a .566 winning percentage.

With their points streak broken and injuries building, the Bruins look to turn around their poor week against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Boston before a four-game road trip.
