Boston • Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley made the Bruins pay for trading them away.
The Dallas forwards scored in a shootout in their first game in Boston since the Stanley Cup finals to lift the Stars to a 3-2 win over the slumping Bruins on Tuesday night.
"I have to say it's a special game," Seguin said. "I knew where this was on the calendar. I knew my first time in Boston."
Bruins coach Claude Julien brushed off a question about whether the loss hurt more because Seguin and Peverley played such big roles.
"I don't care about that. Give it a break," he said. "I'm mad because we lost."
Capitals 6, Islanders 2 • Alex Ovechkin returned from a shoulder injury to score his 11th and 12th goals of the season, and host Washington rode a second-period flurry to a win over New York.
