The Bruins look like they need something to get them out of their early-season funk, but any old pep talk probably won't do.

But while the B's may look like they're miles away from how they were playing while winning the Stanley Cup, it really was a matter of inches that made the difference between a loss and a win on Saturday night.

The Bruins hit the post three times and the Montreal goalposts seemed to make more saves than Carey Price on Saturday night. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding those goalposts our "Any Given Saturday" player of the game award for their role in thwarting the Bruins, and he's hoping that next time the bounces will go the Bruins way.
