Morning Line- Bruce Boudreau

After a 5-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning,

(on the bad loss at the end of the trip …)

“I can’t use any excuses. We can’t let everybody off the hook. We played horrible. I thought our first period was good. And then we came out and as soon as they scored the first goal, we were OK. But once they got the second goal, it was like ‘Ah, we’re not going to come back.’ There was no fight left in us. That’s the bothersome part for the coaches.”

(on what he said during the timeout …)

“It was a time out that said listen, if you guys are going to sit and sulk and feel sorry for yourselves, they’re going to get nine before this game’s out. It’ll be way more embarrassing. You’ve got to play. You can’t feel sorry for yourself because nobody feels sorry for you in this league."

(on not pulling Andersen after the fifth goal …)

“It was tough. He’s got to battle himself. I thought it would have been worse for him psyche-wise if we had pulled him. It was halfway through the third period when they got the fifth goal. Sometimes you can’t just be pulling goalies when they start scoring goals.”
