Game 1 mistake won’t deter Bruins rookie Krug

Boston’s Torey Krug has been huge for the Bruins’ success this postseason. Last night, however, it was his “terrible turnover” that turned into the game-winning goal in triple-overtime.

Krug faced the music at today’s off-day press conference and said if he had to do it all over again, he’d do it pretty much the same way.

“I’d probably try again in the future. I would just execute it differently,” he said. “For me, playing that way, you have to have a short-term memory. I think the best players do. I’ll quickly forget about it. I’ll learn from it.”

Bruins coach Claude Julien certainly hopes he will, but he won’t throw him under the bus for his mistake.

“It’s easy to focus in on one thing,” Julien said. “Yes, it was a mistake  to throw that puck up the middle. If you look back at the play, I didn’t think we had a great line change and he didn’t have a ton of options. I think there could be some blame shared on that goal.”

If the Bruins are going to even things up in Game 2, they’ll need everyone to be sharper.
