Playing in front of a packed house against their archrival on Hockey Night in Canada after waking up as the last-place team in the Eastern Conference didn’t do the trick.

The Bruins are now 3-7-0, the worst 10-game start by a defending Stanley Cup champion since the 1994-95 New York Rangers went 4-5-1 (they were coached by Colin Campbell — how’s that for a coincidence?).
Tyler Seguin scored a 6-on-5 goal and Milan Lucic also scored for the Bruins, who will be back in action Tuesday night at home against the surprising Ottawa Senators.
