Highlights: Bruins' stars shine in revenge win over Capitals originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Revenge was a dish best served on ice Sunday at TD Garden.

The Boston Bruins scored four consecutive goals against the Capitals to rally to a 6-3 win, atoning for their brutal 8-1 loss to Washington last Sunday.

Boston's best players led the charge, as Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Krejci scored two goals apiece while David Pastrnak added a pair of assists.

Tuukka Rask stopped 30 of the Capitals' 33 shots in a highly physical battle that saw Washington forward Garnet Hathaway get ejected for a hit near the boards on Bruins defenseman Jarred Tinordi.

Boston's fourth consecutive win was much-needed, as it moved the club six points ahead of the New York Rangers for the final playoff spot in the East Division.

Here are the best plays from Sunday's matinee.
