In case you haven't been watching lately, the Boston Bruins haven't been doing so great. In their last eleven contests, the B's are 5-5-1 including an embarrassing 6-0 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night.
On Friday, Bruins alternate captain Patrice Bergeron joined 98.5 The Sports Hub to talk about the team's recent struggles. Even though the team is still second in the Eastern Conference, Bergeron's still concerned with his team's execution.
"Right now we're obviously not playing to the best of our abilities, said Bergeron. "We have to turn the ship around. It's not gonna happen overnight and we know it." (via CSNNE)
In games that they have lost in their past four, Bergeron and the B's have averaged under a goal a game. The problem with the Bruins lately has clearly been their offense right. Well for the most part, yes. However, the goal tenders deserve some of the blame to.
On Wednesday night, Tuukka Rask got the start in net but didn't stay long. Rask was chased from First Niagara Center after giving up three goals in just over a period of play. Rask indirectly blamed his poor performance on his playing time.
"Obviously I don't want to be sitting on the bench my whole career and I like it here, but obviously I want to play and sometimes you play a great game and then next game you can't play and sometimes it gets frustrating but you don't show it for the team." (via ESPN)
