McAvoy and Swayman give their opinion on loss to the Hurricanes

Published April 10, 2024 at 1:11 PM

The Bruins lost 4-1 last night to the Hurricanes at TD Garden, it was a tough loss after beating the same team just a few days earlier.

Defenseman Charlie McAvoy commented on the situation saying he believes it was good preparation for the playoff as they beat them 4 days ago and now loss by the same score. He believes the Bruins played well, just not well enough to beat a solid team like the Hurricanes.

"To put it into context, we just played this team four days ago. That's playoff hockey. We beat them and then we lost to them," Charlie McAvoy said. "That's how a seven-game series works. If there's anything to learn about this or use in context it's that this is playoff hockey. It was the same thing with Florida except that was a week. We're going to see teams again. It's who's going to adapt and be able to elevate from the beginning of a series to the end of a series."- McAvoy

Goaltender Jeremy Swayman on the other hand felt he could have played much better, claiming they need to be able to get punched and get back up.

"It's our job to get punched in the face and get back up," he said. "That's what we did tonight." - Swayman

Hopefully this was the perfect lesson less than two weeks before the beginning of playoffs.
