Where do I even begin? I mean the obvious answer to recapping a hockey game would be to start at the beginning, close the piece with the final score and a blurb about who the Bruins play next. Yet, as the Bruins dropped the second biggest game of the season 2-1 in the shootout to the Carolina Hurricanes, I’m finding myself at a loss to begin this one.
