Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin will make his first start of the season Monday. He is 5-1-0 in seven career NHL games, with a 1.32 goals against average. In his only previous action with Boston, he posted a 3-1 win against Ottawa last April.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
