Mashup: Giants' Coughlin in 'dark' place

Patriots fans might get a chuckle, but Giants coach Tom Coughlin is not dealing well with his team's disastrous loss to the Eagles on Sunday. At Monday's press conference, he told reporters: "What did I do? I sat in a room with the lights out for about two and a half hours. It’s not funny. It’s not the way it’s supposed to be." Coughlin said he is moving forward with punter Matt Dodge, despite berating him on the field for not kicking the ball out of bounds as instructed on the game-winning touchdown that completed a fourth-quarter meltdown. Dodge received the support of his teammates Monday, and normally reserved quarterback Eli Manning attempted to rally the troops by calling a team meeting.

Julien: 'I'm really disappointed in our effort'

Claude Julien didn't pull any punches following his team's dismal performance in a 3-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks Monday night at TD Garden. The Bruins were shutout for the third time this season as the sellout crowd began booing the home team late in the first period and continued to voice their displeasure throughout. 

 

"We had all the reasons in the world to want to compete tonight, an opportunity to move up five spots [in Eastern Conference] and we didn't have enough guys going tonight, there's no doubt there," Julien said. "Our compete level needed to be better. I'm disappointed. I'm really disappointed in our effort tonight and it's not something we should be proud of and we should be willing to try to redeem ourselves next game and find some more emotion and more intensity in our game."

 

Julien said while it was good that his team put 45 shots on Jonas Hiller, he said his players "need...

Quack job: B's blanked by Ducks

In one of their more lackluster performances of the season, the Bruins were blanked by the Anaheim Ducks, 3-0, Monday night at TD Garden. The Bruins did manage 45 shots on Jonas Hiller but could not sustain pressure in front as Hiller recorded his second shutout this season, and eighth career. 

 

Brandon McMillan scored six minutes into the first to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead. Lubomir Visnovsky fired a snapshot past Tim Thomas just under five minutes into the second. But the biggest blow - and the one that brought the boos reigning onto the Garden ice - was the shorthanded goal by Corey Perry to put the Ducks up, 3-0, after two periods. After trailing 7-2 in shots to start the game, the Bruins outshot the Ducks, 43-17 the rest of the way but to no avail. 

 

Promising rookie defenseman Steve Kampfer was pushed into the corner boards by Teemu Selanne and had to be helped to the dressing room in the second period but...
