The Boston Bruins are dead in the water. Dead!“Teams aren’t beating us, we’re beating ourselves,” Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters after his team lost at Florida 6-2. “That’s what’s disappointing right now, we’re beating ourselves. That’s not taking any credit from their team , that played well. But we know our team better, and our team is much better than it played. It was basically a whole team collapse.”Tim Thomas told the Boston Herald that his team just cannot catch a break right now. Every mishap ends up in their net.“It’s Twilight Zone-ish,” he sad. “I don’t know what we did, but we did something to put luck not in our favor. A lot of times you get the luck that you work for. It’s not that we’re not working, but I haven’t seen a run of bounces like this in a long time.“We’ve done a good job of sticking together and keeping as positive as we can, but that’s not working. I don’t know what we can do, you know? We’ve got to do something, I know that.“I don’t know if I’ve ever been part of a run quite like this. Generally you just put them behind you and move on to the next one, but we’ve been doing that and we’re still stuck in the same place. I don’t have the answers.”Here are some of the grim facts: The defending Stanley Cup champions are 16-18-2 in their last 36 games. The Bruins have trailed entering the third period in 25 of the last 30 games, going 7-16-2 in those 25. Thomas is 3-5-0 in goal for the Bruins this month with a 4.06 goals-against average and an .842 save percentage. They have allowed 21 goals in the last four games. They have lost four in a row in regulation for the first time since Jan. 18-29, 2010.
