BOSTON BRUINS FORWARD BRETT CONNOLLY
Brett Connolly 1On if Rask or Krug had the better save tonight…
Oh…yeah no, both pretty good but Kruger [Torey Krug] laying down the line- that’s a big play in a close hockey game and the points that we needed. It’s good to see guys laying down the line and playing for each other and he’s a guy who’s committed to winning and it was a good play on his part.

On why he thinks he hasn’t had luck with scoring goals…
Well it’s obviously been a little frustrating. It was nice to obviously get that one in the last game and just didn’t really care how it went in just get something in the net. And I thought obviously tonight you’re a little bit more comfortable and a little bit more confident and just making plays. And I thought that our line was very good again tonight and you know it’s a matter of saving it. Usually when you get that monkey off your back usually you’re start scoring a little bit more and that’s what I was hoping would happen but you know you have to stick with it. Keep getting chances every night, another chance and you have to stick with it, keep shooting and hopefully they’ll go in.

On third periods…
Yeah for sure. You know we were scoring so many goals for an extended period of time and you know we knew it wasn’t going to keep going they way it was going obviously you know really high paces and we kind of hit a little bit of a lull in the last couple week. But you know the last couple games we’re getting obviously chances from a lot of different guys and a lot of different guys are stepping up. So you know it will come you just have to stick with it. I think you know goal scoring can get really streaky and you know when you get confident and everybody is confident then that’s when you see a lot of guys scoring goals. We just have to stick with it.

On if it’s hard to stay positive…
Yeah no for sure. You obviously you know get frustrated sometimes but you can’t let that get to you. It’s easier said than done. But you know you have to stick with it, keep shooting, get to the net.
