Did the Boston Bruins hit a wall in November, or are they just not getting the same effort they enjoyed in October?
That’s a matter of debate, although it’s pretty clear where Claude Julien stands after a 5-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks.
The Bruins finished October on a tear, going 6-1-0. Things have soured since then, as they’ve gone 2-5-0 since November began.
One thing seems tough to debate: the Bruins need to find a way to improve on defense, which is definitely not a familiar predicament.
