Posted March 04, 2018 12:53:56 The Bruins have had a busy week.
They have started the season 1-1-1 and have lost their first three games.
The Bruins are currently sitting at 8-7-3, with a losing record of 4-10-3.
They play in their first NHL home game against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday.
Bruins’ forwards coach Mike Babcock is currently looking to get a win against the Caps on Wednesday, March 3, as the Bruins try to improve to 4-1 on the season.
“I’m very confident,” Babcock said.
And obviously it’s a game in Washington and it’s the first game of the season, and obviously we’re trying to go into it with a positive mindset and get some wins, and we’ll be there tomorrow and we have some opportunities to get some points and hopefully some goals.” “
And I think that we have to be able to execute.

The Bruins were also on the verge of getting their first win of the regular season on Thursday night, but their offense didn’t take off that night.
Bruins forward Max Talbot had three shots on goal, and they scored on their first two shots in the first period.
But, with the Caps scoring first, the Bruins were able to capitalize on a loose puck and take the lead.
After that, the game was tied 1-all at one goal apiece, with four minutes remaining.
“The game was going pretty well for us at the start of the game, but then the second period went into overtime and we lost,” said defenseman Kevin Fiala.
That was our game and we didn’t execute well. “
In the second, we took a bad penalty on us.
That was our game and we didn’t execute well.
So it was a good game for us and a good performance for our players.”
Bruins coach Claude Julien said he thinks the team has improved from their previous performance, which was their worst in four games.
“It’s definitely a good sign that we are doing better, that we’re getting results,” he said.
The Caps are 0-4-1 against Boston this season.
They are currently tied with the Chicago Blackhawks and the Ottawa Senators for the most losses in franchise history.
Bruins defenseman Zach Trotman scored the game-winner on Tuesday night, giving him seven goals on the year.
“If you think about our record against Boston, I think last year was the worst in the league,” Julien joked.
“So, if you want to compare it to last year, we had five or six players who were here last year that are gone and we’ve got six or seven players that are here and they’re good.”
