Boston Bruins Notes, Quotes 2008-11-17
--The Bruins saw their five-game winning streak end with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Rangers in New York Saturday night. Still, the B's are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games and have surrendered 11 goals in their last nine.


--Five of the last six games against the Rangers have ended in shootouts, the Bruins going 2-3.

--The Bruins have scored first in 13 of their first 17 games, going 8-3-2 in those 12 games.

--The Boston penalty killing, a disaster at the start of the season, was perfect in six chances Saturday night, got the team's first shorthanded goal of the season from Dennis Wideman and is 26-for-27 over the last six games. The B's killed a pair of 5-on-3s Saturday.

--The power play was 6-for-23 over the previous five games before going 0-for-2 Saturday night.

--Boston is just 1-4 this season in shootouts and is 2-4 in games decided in extra times.

--The B's are 5-1-1 at home, 5-2-3 on the road.

--The Bruins pay their first visit of the season to Toronto, a team they've already split two games with in Boston this season. Last year, Boston was 3-0-1 in Toronto.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It wasn't like we blew a five-goal lead. A two-goal lead is probably the worst lead in hockey. We played pretty well most of the game, and then at the end they were putting a lot of pressure on us. We could've handled it a little better." -- Bruins captain Zdeno Chara after his team lost in a shootout Saturday night after failing to hold a late 2-0 lead.
