Bruins Look to Bounce Back in Detroit

by Caryn Switaj @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

DETROIT - When the Bruins play a simple game, they find results.

 

That's what defenseman Torey Krug was focusing on Wednesday morning, as he and the Bruins were preparing to face the Red Wings for Rivalry Night on NBCSN (8:00 p.m. EST // Radio: 98.5 The Sports Hub). 

 

"The simplicity of our game is crucial for our success," said Krug. "I think also when we're skating well, and that includes getting in on the forecheck and going back to break out pucks. I think when we're skating well, all five guys are playing really fast and it's hard to keep up with."

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

Bruins Can't Keep It Rolling in Loss to Islanders

Boston has struggled to find consistency

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins hit the ice at TD Garden on Monday afternoon with the hopes of continuing a strong stretch that began during last week's lengthy road trip. Boston entered the matinee against the Islanders with 19 goals over their last five games - during which they were 3-1-1 - and appeared to be turning the corner offensively.

But consistency has not been the Bruins' forte this season.

The Black & Gold could not carry over any of that momentum they had built up in recent days, fallling, 4-0, to the Islanders at TD Garden.
