Final score: ‘Canes 3, Bruins 0

    Not even a third period comeback was in the Bruins’ cards this afternoon.

    Boston dropped its fifth game on home ice of the season this afternoon, 3-0 to the Carolina Hurricanes at the TD Garden. It was the 10th time this season where Boston trailed after the second period.

    Box score highlights and lowlights

  • Boston outshot Carolina 37-21, but went 0-for-3 on the power play this afternoon
  • For the first time this season, the B’s allowed three power play goals-against, snapping their streak of having killed off 18-straight times short
  • Jordan Caron was a scratch today due to the flu — insert Daniel Paille, who had a rough outing. Paille played 4:06 in the first period, but finished the three frames with over 10 minutes total ice time. No. 20 coughed the puck over on a three-on-one shorthanded break, with Patrice Bergeron down the middle and Zdeno Chara crashing the offensive zone on the far wing. The result: Jeff Skinner’s (7) power play goal to put the ‘Canes up 1-0.
  • Lucic–Bergeron–Horton combined for 15 of the Bruins’ 36 totals shots today
  • Cam Ward looked liked Cam Ward circa 2005-06 Conn Smythe Trophy winner. The 26-year-old netminder earned his first shutout  and 10th win on the season in a perfect 37-save performance.
  • Tuomo Ruutu extended his point-streak to five games with a goal and an assist today. And rookie Jeff Skinner pocketed his seventh goal of the season and 18th point.
