Highlights: Bruins fall apart in third period vs. Islanders, lose 7-2 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The third time was not a charm for the Boston Bruins vs. the New York Islanders.

After dropping their first two matchups against the Isles, the B's came up short again Thursday night. They entered the third period tied at two goals apiece, but the Isles pulled away with five goals in the third to earn the 7-2 victory. The loss marked the Bruins' third in their last four games.
