The Bruins’ season started with a dream banner-raising ceremony at the TD Garden.
It’s quickly become a nightmare.
After Saturday night’s 4-2 loss to the hated Canadiens, Boston is 3-7-0 on the year — last in the Eastern Conference. They’re just 2-5-0 at home, and they’ve netted a total of 22 goals — among the fewest in the league.
Saturday’s loss added insult to injury. It was the B’s second defeat at the hands of the Habs in as many games, following Thursday’s 2-1 loss at home.
The team watched game film instead of practicing yesterday in an effort to bounce back.
“A lot of times players don’t think they’re as bad as they are until they see it,” coach Claude Julien told reporters.?“When they see it, it kind of opens their eyes. We’ve attacked different areas at times and showed them. Today was more of the whole package.
“That’s why we kept our whole day on video more than on practice. They need to realize it before they can do something about it.”
