In fact, discouraged isn't even a word in their vocabulary.
"I don't know what that means, but I don't think so," said Bruins center Carl Soderberg, a native of Sweden.
The point is that even though the Bruins lost Game 1 of the series 1-0 Friday, they'll be at home for Game 2 on Sunday (3 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC) with no need to panic. In several series, their core had to come back from as many as 2-0 down to win or at least extend it.
Forward Jarome Iginla is in his first playoffs with the Bruins, but he said he sees the resolve that's made the Bruins a resilient team for several seasons.
"I think this group in here, we're prepared to work hard and we take a lot of pride in that and competing," Iginla said after practice at TD Garden. "Things don't always go perfectly and they haven't even during the year. It's part of it. And we also, you know, we believe in ourselves and each other. One game isn't going to change that."
