Julien: ‘We deserved the win if we scored the goals’

It seemed very innocent and obvious when Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] gave his team credit for battling the hottest and best team in the NHL [2] to a 1-1 draw after two periods. After watching his team surrender three in the third, it became nothing more than another in a string of eight straight losses, 4-1 to Alex Ovechkin [3] and the Washington Capitals [4].

In short, Julien said they deserved the win on Tuesday night “if we had scored some goals.” Julien believed his team could have been up, 4-1, after two instead of tied.

And of course, deserving the win and earning the win is a bridge these struggling Bruins have yet to cross.

Here is what Julien had to say [5] for his troops following Tuesday’s setback, an eighth straight loss that gave them their longest losing skid in 54 seasons.
