BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Boston Bruins try to halt a season-high
three-game skid on Sunday when they host the Phoenix Coyotes.
Boston dropped its third straight with Friday's 2-1 setback to
Nashville. Joe Thornton's first-period goal accounted for all of
the Bruins' offense.
The Bruins generated 27 shots in the final two periods, but came
up empty. One problem was the penalty box since Boston allowed
Nashville to skate with the man advantage seven times.
The loss dropped Boston's record against the Western Conference
to 8-1-1-1. It has scored six goals in its skid and each of its
last six games have been decided by one goal.
Phoenix ended a three-game skid with Thursday's 6-4 triumph over
Los Angeles. Ladislav Nagy recorded his first hat trick and the
15th in Coyotes history.
The Coyotes are just 1-4 against Eastern Conference foes.
Phoenix is opening a five-game road trip on which it will face
four East opponents.
Boston has won five straight home games against Phoenix.
