Julien: B's must live up to city's expectations
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- In addressing the Bruins' recent woes, coach Claude Julien brought up the fans' disappointment in the team, noting that given the recent championships of the area's other sports teams, it's up to the Bruins to add to Boston's reputation.

 

"There's expectations here from outside, the fans and the people," Julien said. "There's a lot of winning going around in this city, and if you want to be part of it, you have to show up and play hard every night. 

 

"I think what the players realize is that people here expect their teams to win. They're used to it, and you try to give them what they want. At the end of the day, that's what you want to be. Not just for the fans, but you want to be that yourself."

 

The Bruins have lost four of their last five. They will take on the Thrashers Thursday at TD Garden.

Lucic: 'Everyone's calling for blood'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins, losers of four of their last five games, find themselves searching for answers as they try to find a balance of both consistency and emotion. After Monday's 3-0 loss to the Ducks showcased a glaringly lethargic team, the B's find themselves in an unflattering light around town. Fans are questioning coach Claude Julien, while the lack of a full team effort has resulted in expected media scrutiny. Amidst all the negativity, forward Milan Lucic said the guys on the ice are the ones who ultimately have to produce if they want to right the ship.

 

"Everyone's calling for blood, the media's writing negative stuff about us, but we've got to have each other's back and stick up for one another, and it's all going to start from in here," Milan Lucic told WEEI.com Tuesday. "It's got to be a team effort where all 20 guys are committed to putting in the work."

 

Lucic said the team is aware...

Recchi on D&C: 'We have to win Thursday'

Bruins forward Mark Recchi was a guest on the Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday, the morning after his club was blanked 3-0 by the Ducks at TD Garden. The Bruins were booed by the home crowd throughout the contest, and coach Claude Julien admitted after the game that he was "really disappointed" by the effort his team, which has won just once in its last five games.

 

Recchi was asked about the loss and the lackluster play of the Bruins as of late.

 

"You can't have those games," said Recchi of Monday night's performance. "We know it's 82 games, but the compete level has to be there every night. It's something we as a group have to address and keep getting better at. We know it's 32 games in and we still have an opportunity in the next couple of weeks to jump into first place and in our division. But we can't seem to make that jump right now and that's something that's going to be very important...

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.
