Game Notes:

  • It is better to have OTd and lost than to never have OTd at all. But an OT loss against the Sens that showcased effort further erodes the "Big, Bad, Bruins" to just the "Bad Bruins."
  • Both defensive and offensive woes are piling up for Boston. Patrice Bergeron said "It's about finding a way really (to) bear down defensively when we do have the lead, (and) offensively, finding a way to give ourselves a breather."
  • Bruins have lost 12 of their last 18 games. Let's shift the momentum here.

NEVER FORGET:

You know it's a rough season when "Never Forget" just makes you sad. Even Lucic empty-netters.
