Julien rips Bruins for ‘unacceptable’ play


The Boston Bruins looked liked they’d turned it around.

Then came November.

With last night’s home loss to Colorado, the B’s fell to 1-4-0 on the month, and 7-7-1 overall.

Coach Claude Julien called his team’s play “unacceptable.”

“Ten minutes of good hockey isn’t enough,” he said, per CSN New England’s Joe Haggerty.

Julien was referring to the first 10 minutes of the 3-2 loss to the Avalanche. The B’s had jumped out to a 2-0 lead, only to be tied before the first period was over.

“I think as a group we have to figure it out,” Julien told NHL.com. “You’re so proud of your team one night because they come in and they play hard and you win hockey games and tell yourself this is the identity of our team, this is how we’ve got to play. And then the next night it’s not there.”

Defensive breakdowns continue to plague the B’s:

Yes, Kevan Miller had a tough night.

The Bruins will try to improve their 1-5-1 home record Saturday when they host their division rivals from Detroit.
