Sounds of the game… Sabres 4, Bruins 2

Posted By Mike Petraglia On January 3, 2009 @ 3:05 pm In General | No Comments

For the first time since Dec. 10, the Bruins tasted defeat on Saturday, snapping a remarkable 10-game run of success. And for the first time since Oct. 23, they lost at home, a 14-game string of victory. How long ago was that? The Red Sox [1] had just lost Game 7 of the ALCS to Tampa Bay four days earlier. Afterward, every Bruin to a man talked about facing adversity and how they plan to learn from this loss. Perhaps Milan Lucic [2] said it best when he said that “good teams don’t lose two in a row and we have to be hungry come our next game.”  That will be the focus when they continue their six-game homestand against Minnesota on Tuesday night. But for now, we look back on a game with the help of coach Claude Julien [3], who introduced a new term into the lexicon of the Boston sports fan. “We needed some JAM and this was one of those games where you need a little bit more JAM.”  JAM is apparently hockey-talk for juice, energy and desire.

Julien said Saturday wasn’t Boston’s best effort [4].

Julien said Buffalo earned the win [5].

Milan Lucic said the Bruins will be hungry to start a new streak [6].

Marc Savard on the winning streaks coming to an end [7].

Tim Thomas said it was good to be tested with a loss [8].
