Bruce Cassidy Doesn’t Mince Words After Ugly Bruins Loss Vs. Oilers

'We're not good enough to make some of the plays we're trying to make'


Nov 12, 2021

Bruce Cassidy was rightfully angry after Thursday’s ugly loss to the Oilers and sounds like someone who feels his message is being ignored.

The Boston Bruins dropped a very winnable game against Edmonton, ending a perfect home streak to start the season. That’s the least of Cassidy’s worries, though, considering there were several defensive miscues and too many passes in the 60 minutes of play.

“The lack of shooting is 100% on us,” Cassidy. told reporters after the game. “We have to get that message across. We’re not good enough to make some of the plays we’re trying to make. That’s on us to make sure we’re playing the right way to (give us) the best chance we have to win. Another good team found a way to beat us in crunch time. At some point, it’s not by accident. We have to do a better job.”

The head coach already has switched up his lines in hopes to get something going and generate some offense, but the defense has been sloppy at times, too. Perhaps Cassidy digs deeper into his bag and makes even more lineup adjustments, sending a player or two to the press box in the process.

Whatever it may be, the Bruins don’t have too much time to sort it out because they hit the road to take on the New Jersey Devils on Saturday afternoon.
