After last night’s 4-2 setback at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres in TD Garden, the B's will look to rebound on the road where they have found success this season.
“You know, you've got to make sure you don’t carry that into the next game," said Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien of the loss to Buffalo. "And I think our focus has to be there."
Boston flew to Denver, Colo. this afternoon where they will take on the Colorado Avalanche (24-17-6) in the Pepsi Center tomorrow afternoon.
Following that game, the B’s will board another flight to Los Angeles, Calif. where they’ll square off against the LA Kings in the Staples Center on Monday night.
“We know it’s going to be some tough games," Julien said. "We’re going in to some buildings where teams are battling for a playoff spot in that conference and they’re never easy games.
“The travel and the time change and everything else represents a challenge in of itself, so we gotta make sure we’re prepared and ready to do our job here.”
Although the Black & Gold will find themselves on the other side of the country, they have no qualms about playing on the road where they have a 14-5-4 record, good for 32 points.
"We love to have our fans behind us and we like to be in or building," explained Julien. “But, you know, the road’s been good to us this year.
"We’ve played some great games and somehow our guys seem to really be prepared and they seem to bond well together on the road.
“So just another opportunity for us to get some valuable points,” he said.---Hannah Becker
