Bruins’ penalty kill streak snapped

Seconds from a successful kill

In Thursday night’s second period, the Bruins were four seconds away from killing their 28th straight penalty. Coach Claude Julien was preparing for five-on-five play. He had replaced Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille, two of his penalty-killing forwards, with David Krejci and Nathan Horton.

But a broken play halted the Bruins’ streak. At 14:38, just before Shawn Thornton was set to finish serving a too many men infraction, Ottawa’s Jim O’Brien beat Tuukka Rask to tie the game at 1-1.
