B’s need to be two-timers

BOSTON  —  Patrice Bergeron [1] stood before reporters with a very somber face in front of his locker following Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings [2] at TD Garden.

Good reason.

His Bruins, despite getting back the services of Marco Sturm [3] and Steve Begin, still couldn’t find a way to hold a 2-1 third period lead and fell in a shootout. Yes, the Bruins captured one point but as Bergeron pointed out afterward, when you’ve now lost seven in a row and six straight at home for the first time in 85 years, that one point seems of extremely little consolation.

“Tonight was a good effort but we’ve got to find a way to get those two points,” Bergeron said. “We kept having some chances. We scored a goal, on the power play. I don’t think they were all over us with that 2-1 but they found a way to come back and tie it.”

Bergeron’s take on the 3-2 shootout which still leaves the Bruins on the outside looking in at the Eastern Conference playoff picture [4].

Bruins coach Claude Julien said the team is coming around [5].

Marco Sturm talked afterward about his first outing in seven games as he returned from a leg injury [6].
