Hey, guess what happened last night? The Bruins lost on the shootout again! They haven’t won a single one this season. They’re 0-5 this season. Granted, it’s a glorified skills competition activity. Would I rather the team be built for that or for winning games in regulation? The latter, of course. But, they’re not doing that either.
Last night’s game wasn’t that bad but it wasn’t nearly as exciting as Jack would lead you to believe. Largely, it was back and forth with the Bruins finally getting the massage in the second period that they need to SHOOT THE PUCK. Seriously, that chat between Sean Kuraly and Sophia Jurkstzowicz in between the first and second period was terse and tense as Kuraly said the words that we all want to shout at the team all the time: shoot the puck.
Yes, the Islanders are a contender, so the sting doesn’t hurt as much as losing to the Kings in overtime. However, when a team leader comes out and says what Torey Krug said, the team needs to make some adjustments.
Torey Krug: "I think we really have to hate to lose more. The more you hate to lose, the more you don't accept these outcomes, you don't accept the way that you're playing. Everyone has a big role. Let's get back to it."

I think that pretty much encapsulates it.
Hopefully the B’s will want to win on Saturday night against the Nashville Predators, a dreadful team full of losing.
