  8. All seemed well as Boston was a perfect 1-for-1, but that all came to crashing halt in a hurry.Wednesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes proved to be the most frustrating display yet as the Bruins went a staggering 0 for 5 in power-play chances with seven shots on goal as they lost 3-2. the wholesale jerseys online sale Seguin cut
    the lead in half and Marchand put Boston within one, but not being able to capitalize when they're suppose to cost Boston as it dropped to 1-3 with a trip to Chicago
