The Boston Bruins played without forward Patrice Bergeron. Also, Captain Zdeno Chara and three other of their starting defensemen.

However, the Bruins weren’t the only team with injury issues.

The Arizona Coyotes are without defensemen Jason Demers (Out Indefinitely), Jakob Chychrun and Alex Goligoski. They are still without starting goaltender Antti Raanta.

Forward Josh Archibald is out for 2 games for an illegal check to the head of Preds forward Ryan Hartman.

The Coyotes started from behind, with Boston scoring two goals in 2:45 at the start of the first period. Bruins forwards Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson and Jake DeBrusk were the goal scorers. In the last minutes of the first period, Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk seemingly scored, but the goal was overturned when Bruins forward Andres Bjork was found to have interfered with Coyotes goaltender Darcy Kuemper.

The Coyotes went into the first intermission down 2-0.

The Coyotes finally breakthrough in the second period with a shot from forward Vinnie Hinostroza that got deflected by forward Brad Richardson, putting the Coyotes on the board. 2-1 Boston halfway through the second.

The Coyotes outshot the Bruins 9-3 in the second period and controlled play for most of the period.

The Coyotes continued to put on pressure throughout the third period, including a powerplay at the end of the game but they just couldn’t get anything past goaltender Jaroslav Halak.

“We had a great second period, had our chances to get the equalizer. We had a bunch of chances we just didn’t score,” Head Coach Rick Tocchet said after the game. “We had some good chances, we had the 2-on-0, we have some good chances.”

“In these moments you gotta make sure you go to those spots, sometimes I think we freeze on that 6-on-4 and that was a little disappointing.”

The Coyotes will know if they could see the return of Raanta, Chychrun and Goligoski later in the week when they play three games in five days before embarking on a short road trip to end the month of November.
