The Boston Bruins came up short trying to sweep their four game opening season road trip.
While the team will take six out of eight points from a road trip, it could have been eight out of eight.
The Bruins' had two goals called back on Thursday night which ended up being the difference in the final 4-2 score.
Jake DeBrusk who's been pegged as a "Breakout" candidate this year had been held pointless through the team's first three games, and luck had it that he was involved in both goals that were called back.
"Any time that you get production finally and it gets taken away from you - twice - it’s just one of those things where, you know, I almost don’t believe it but at the same time that’s how things are going for me," he said.
"I scored and had an assist tonight, but they got pulled back. We should’ve won this game 4-2, but honestly, those weren’t goals, I guess. One was offside and goaltender interference. They looked at it and called it how it was. I don’t think it’s going to snowball, but it's definitely pissing me off, for sure."
DeBrusk showed great potential last year and should break out of this slump in a big way. As for the loss, the Bruins start a three game home stand tomorrow against the New Jersey Devils.
