Say this much for Bruins head coach Claude Julien  – he’s not looking for sympathy.
In the opening month of the season, he has lost his leading playmaker Marc Savard , his leading tough guy in Milan Lucic  and now, David Krejci , one of his most skilled young forwards has been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus.
Add to that the team’s power play is dead last among the 30 NHL  clubs and you have a team that is having a hard time scoring. How hard? Try 192 minutes, six seconds without lighting the lamp between Vladimir Sobotka’s tally on Saturday and Patrice Bergeron’s game-tying goal with 51.7 seconds to go on Thursday.
Still, the Bruins had to settle for just the one point as the trio of Blake Wheeler , Bergeron and Mark Recchi  could not solve Carey Price  in the shootout and fell 2-1 to the Montreal Canadiens .
