The Bruins’ loss Saturday night to the Maple Leafs was a tough pill to swallow. The B’s put forth a solid effort, but weren’t able to capitalize on their opportunities in front of the net.
On top of their offensive woes, the Bruins got caught on their heels in transition, which opened up another can of worms. In the video above, Bruins center Rich Peverley thinks his teammates have control of the puck on the offensive end and proceeds to attempt to get off the ice, presumably for a bit of rest.
The Bruins end up losing the puck and are caught in a 2-on-1 on defense, with Dennis Seidenberg taking on Clark Macarthur and Jean-Michel Liles. The end result is a Maple Leafs goal scored by Nazem Kadri.
The Bruins have a chance to redeem themselves Monday against the Maple Leafs at home, but they’re going to need better communication than this.
