Bruins Video: Marchand: ‘We were a little sleepy, I guess, at times’



The Boston Bruins laid a stinker in their return to TD Garden after going 3-1-0 on a four-game road trip. The Bruins didn’t have it from the opening faceoff and never found their game, losing 5-2 to the Calgary Flames. For a team that prides themselves in a structured game and staying within their system regardless of their opponent, the Bruins seemed to think they were going to be able to play a game of shinny as they did with the Flames in the first period of their 4-3 win last Friday when they combined for six goals in the opening frame.

“We definitely had a little bit of that tonight,” Marchand acknowledged when asked if he thought he and his teammates got “a bit too cute” Tuesday. “We lost a lot of battles; we weren’t keeping it simple and especially on that ice. It’s tough to make plays on that ice so you gotta keep it very simple. We didn’t do enough of that. We didn’t get enough shots to the net when we had opportunities. So a little bit more of that and it will go our way.”
