What’s wrong with the Bruins and can they fix it in time for the playoffs? – The athlete

The Bruins have lost three regular games in a row. It’s their longest such streak since December 2019, when they dropped four straight to Colorado, Ottawa, Washington and Tampa Bay.

That’s not how they want to clear their throat before the playoffs. You keep sinking into a wild card spot. This could set her up for a first-round showdown with Carolina. The Hurricanes won all three regular season games between teams, beating the Bruins by a 16-1 margin.

But the Bruins can at least cheer themselves up by the fact that the reasons for their slump are easy to identify.


David Pastrnak, the team’s top scorer (38), has been absent from the past five games with a torso injury. Hampus Lindholm (upper body), the No. 2 defender, has been unavailable in the last four games. Brandon Carlo left Tuesday’s game against St. Louis in the first half with an undisclosed injury and was unavailable against Ottawa on Thursday.

Linus Ullmark is the latest body to go under.

In Thursday’s first half, Emil Brannstrom steamed a slapshot that was deflected by Jesper Froden’s stick and smashed Ullmark in the cage. Ullmark ended the period but did not return.
