Bruins leave the past behind, look ahead to Game 5
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Tuukka Rask doesn’t plan on revisiting his worst performance of the playoffs.
“You let in six goals, it’s not something you look forward to repeating, I guess,” said the Bruins goaltender.
Bruins head coach Claude Julien agreed.
“We could have lost 10-0 or you lose in overtime. A loss is a loss in the playoffs. You hear people saying that all the time. We just have to look at ourselves here. What can we do to be better for the next game versus what we could have done better last night,” said Julien.
Wednesday night the Bruins poured in five goals. But it wasn’t enough to erase their shaky play on the defensives end.
“I thought there were certain aspects of the game that could have been better, especially on the defensive side of the puck. But you know it’ll just be one of those things that we need to correct for the next game,” said Bruins forward Chris Kelly.
His teammate Brad Marchand agreed.
“It’s nice to get five goals, but we definitely need to pick up our defense game. We can’t allow that many opportunities,” said Marchand.
The Bruins missed opportunity to take full control of this series and now head into a hostile Chicago crowd, even at two games apiece.
“Best two out of three. I mean, we’re excited about it, so it really doesn’t matter now, we just have to make sure we focus on having a really good game next game,” said Marchand.
