The Bruins regrouped on Thursday, a day after losing to the Blackhawks, 6-5, in overtime of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Several players discussed various aspects of the series. Here's a selection of their comments:
Goalie Tuukka Rask, on the Bruins' confidence level:
"I don’t think it should be an issue. I don’t think, for us, it matters whether we are at home or away we always play good games at either places, but I feel confident we can respond."
Forward Brad Marchand, on if it is surprising to be tied 2-2 at this point:
"I don’t think anyone expected to come into this series and win it in four or five games on either side. I mean 2 to 2. We got to be happy with that. Chicago was dominant all year and we are happy that we are just sticking in it. "
Defenseman Adam McQuaid, on what the team will do differently than Game 4:
"We’re not our best. There’s no question about that. We found a way to get ourselves a chance, push the game to overtime. Anything can happen obviously when you get to that point, but I think we need to be a little better next game."
Forward Tyler Seguin, on the Bruins' ability to fix defensive problems:
"Yeah, I feel fine with it. I think that we are a very consistent team in our D zones, so I think, last night wasn't a night to remember in that part. But we’re a team that can definitely bounce back, and a team that, again, were successful when were staying at an even keel after wins or losses. We’re learning from it. We did video this morning, and now were moving on."
