Perhaps the Bruins already had their sights set for Belfast, because they sure played like it on Wednesday night against the Capitals. The Caps were without Alex Ovechkin and Mike Knuble, but that was no problem for Niklas Backstrom, who finished with two goals to lead Washington to a 4-1 win in the TD Garden.

Tim Thomas was between the pipes for the Bruins, and stopped 20 of the 24 shots he faced. His record in the preseason is now 0-1, and with the loss, the B’s finished 1-3-1 in preseason games on American soil. After the game, the team flew to Belfast, Northern Ireland to prepare for Saturday’s exhibition against “Giants.”

Andrew Gordon and Matt Bradley scored the other two goals in the third period for the Caps, who improved to 4-0 in the preseason with the win.

Mark Recchi scored the lone goal for the B’s with the team down 4-0 late in the third.

New Bruin Gregory Campbell and old Bruin Matt Hendricks got into a pretty intense fight early in the first period. It was a draw in book…and both ended up with five-minute major penalties.

Rookie Tyler Seguin played his first game at center this preseason, and was scoreless.
