BOSTON (AP)

Steven Reinprecht broke a second-period tie, and Ilja Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots to lead the revamped Phoenix Coyotes to a 2-1 victory over Boston on Thursday night, sending the East-leading Bruins to their ninth loss in 12 games. Chuck Kobasew scored, and Tim Thomas made 16 saves for Boston. It was the first game in Boston for trade deadline acquisitions Mark Recchi and Steve Montador, but the Bruins were unable to stop the skid that has trimmed their lead to six points over New Jersey. The Bruins took a 1-0 lead when Kobasew's shot was deflected between Bryzgalov's pads at the 7:09 mark of the first period. But Scottie Upshall, acquired from Philadelphia on Wednesday, tied it 5 minutes later, and Reinprecht gave the Coyotes the lead with 12:08 left in the second when he tipped a pass from new teammate Nigel Dawes past Thomas. The teams made six deals combined at Wednesday's deadline, and seven players were on the other ice were wearing different uniforms two days ago. Upshall played against the Bruins on Tuesday night for Philadelphia, and new Boston defenseman Steve Montador was in town a week ago playing for the Anaheim Ducks. Upshall had gone 18 games without a goal before scoring against Boston in the Flyers' 4-2 win Tuesday night. He has scored in consecutive games — both against the Bruins. The new Bruins couldn't make the impact Boston had been hoping for as it tries to reverse a skid that has eaten away at what once was the best record in the NHL.

Notes

Bruins Hall of Famer Milt Schmidt celebrated his 91st birthday. ... Phoenix only took one even-strength shot in the first period. ... Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara flattened Petr Prucha in the first period, choosing to take out the Coyotes forward instead of keeping the puck in the zone.
