The Washington Capitals started their holiday break a bit earlier than planned, falling on the road to the Boston Bruins in a mess of a game.
Jake DeBrusk, Brad Marchand, Anders Bjork, Patrice Bergeron, and Charlie Coyle all scored for the Bruins before the Caps could crack Tuukka Rask. Alex Ovechkin finally did just that in the second period. Lars Eller tipped a shot by Jakub Vrana to narrow the gap a bit, but then David Krecji added an empty-netter. Garnet Hathaway exploited some lazy defense to tack on another goal, but then Kuznetsov got caught playing bad D, allowing Bergeron to make it 7.

Friends: however you mark the occasion, I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I hope you enter the new year with a renewed well of compassion and kindness, and I hope we will one day stand side by side in solidarity to agree one and for all that, actually, Jeremy Roenick always sucked.
