The Boston Bruins didn’t have another comeback in them Saturday night.
Just a few days after coming from behind to win their season opener, the Bruins dropped a 4-1 decision to the Toronto Maple Leafs after allowing three goals in the first period.
“Well, I think we dug ourselves a hole right off the bat there,” Bruins coach Claude Julien told NESN’s Andy Brickley and Jack Edwards on “Bruins Overtime Live” after the loss. “We took some penalties, which gave them some momentum, and they did win the battles. Especially in the first period, I thought they were much more hungry than we were. We had the uphill battle, and whatever chances we had the goaltender made some good saves. Again, I don’t think the effort overall tonight was good enough to win a hockey game.”
