The Boston Bruins came up short in a big game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Boston wasn't able to get anything on the scoreboard as they lost 1-0 to the first place Penguins.
After the game it was the team's third line that head coach Bruce Cassidy wasn't too happy about.
Things were ugly and Cassidy mixed it up during the game creating a line of Charlie Coyle, Curtis Lazar and Nick Ritchie.
“[It’s] a lack of production from a number of guys down there for an extended period of time,” said Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy of the mid-game changes made to the bottom two forward lines. “You expect more from some [of them]. Quite frankly, I think they’re all capable of a little bit more offensively. Some of their roles aren’t necessarily [offensive], but they could certainly create a little bit more.
“So, you move some pieces around. If you’re not going to score, then you need to keep the puck out of your net. We had a shift there where it came down to that type of game and we knew that. We talked about that at the end of the second period. One play makes a difference in that type of game. They made it; we didn’t. We didn’t defend it and there you have it. We just have guys that aren’t producing down there, so you move them around and see if you can spark them another way. I still think it falls on a lot of those players to work a lot harder to attack the net. [They need] a little more will to get inside to do what it takes to score in this league. We’ll address it [at practice] and keep preaching those points and hopefully we’ll get the desired result.”
