BOSTON — Lost in the hubbub of Claude Julien‘s postgame rant about the officiating Sunday night in Boston was the fact that the Bruins head coach wasn’t unhappy with just the referees. The Boston bench boss called on his team to step up its game, aside from one line. It was clear that the line of Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand was by far the Bruins’ best in their 4-3 loss to the Canadiens on Sunday night. Julien praised that line for that, but he didn’t let the rest of the team slide. “By far, they were our best line tonight,” Julien said. “And that’s the unfortunate thing; we didn’t have enough of those other lines going for us. You can’t win big games like that relying on just that one line. We need more out of the other lines and tonight wasn’t a night where we got that. “It’s a credit to them, I think Patrice had a great night. Obviously, Marshy with three assists, and Tyler I thought was skating well and competing well. That was a good line for us. Another line or two like that, with that same work ethic, we would’ve been fine.” The Bergeron line combined for eight points on Sunday night in the loss to the Habs. Seguin and Bergeron each scored a goal and Marchand had the first three-assist game of his career. Bergeron leads the team with 18 points, and he’s followed closely by Marchand (17 points) and Seguin (15 points). David Krejci also has 15 points this season.
