The Bruins snapped their three-game losing streak Sunday with a 2-1 victory over the Islanders at Barclays Center. Coming off a frustrating loss to the Canadiens, the B's jumped out to a 1-0 lead behind a Ryan Spooner goal during a first-period 5-on-3. Patrice Bergeron made it 2-0 in the second period with his fifth goal of the season. Bergeron took a pair of penalties as well in a game that saw the B's take seven minor penalties. Johnny Boychuk scored the Islanders' only goal during a third-period 5-on-3 after Joonas Kemppainen was called for playing the puck with his hand on a faceoff with Kevan Miller already in the box for high-sticking. Tuukka Rask stopped 36 of the 37 shots he saw after sitting on Saturday vs. the Canadiens. The victory improved the B's to 7-6-1 on the season. They'll be out of action for the next three days before beginning a five-game homestand when they host the Avalanche Thursday at TD Garden.
