In their words: Bruins vs. Islanders, 10/24

Read what the players and coaches had to say about the Bruins' 3-2 loss to the New York Boychuks. Claude Julien on the lack of effort in the first two periods.

Bruins Notebook: Seth Griffith buries chance

Bruins Notebook: Seth Griffith buries chance

In Seth Griffith’s previous two NHL games, he started on a line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, only to see veteran Simon Gagne take his spot on the right wing in the third period.Last night at the Garden, Bruins coach Claude Julien decided to stick with the rookie in the third period, and Griffith rewarded that faith 4:50 in by scoring the game-tying goal against the San Jose Sharks as the B’s then went on to a 5-3 victory.Why did Julien decide to stick with Griffith?

Griffith looks like good fit on top line

BOSTON -- Playing alongside two of the best players in the NHL would make any rookie nervous, but the Boston Bruins’ Seth Griffith has proven he can handle his assignment with linemates David Krejci and Milan Lucic. The Bruins have entrusted the right-wing position on their top line to a 21-year-old rookie because Griffith has shown the ability, skill and poise to produce. He’s experienced a quick learning curve in his first four NHL games.

Or be infuriated. But it was Tanev who lost his edge, sliding into the net, taking out Miller like he was Tony Romo getting sacked.
