Once again the team got outdone in the 3rd period, and tonight they all could have been avoided. They have have allowed 18 goals in the 3rd during their 6-game losing streak.Leafs lose sixth straight
BOSTON (AP) -- Brad Stuart, Wayne Primeau, and Patrice Bergeron scored third-period goals and the Bruins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Thursday night.
Tim Thomas had 23 saves for the Bruins, who won for the fifth time in six games. The Maple Leafs lost their sixth straight.
Primeau scored the game-winning goal with 5:53 remaining when he knocked the rebound of a shot by Mark Mowers past Maple Leafs goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin.
Patrice Bergeron added an insurance goal with 1:19 left for Boston.
Toronto dropped its fourth straight to Boston and scored only one goal against the Bruins for the fourth straight game. The teams were playing for the fifth time in 28 days.
The desperationd just doesn't seem ot be there. There is just too much coasting and it's allowing teams to score goals that they just shouldn't score.
