Nothing doing for Bruins again
“We hit some posts and missed some great opportunities tonight,’’ said coach Claude Julien after the Bruins’ 2-0 loss, the second straight time his team has been blanked. “Somehow you’re going to have to make it happen if you want to turn this thing around. Simple as that. It’s up to us to decide how tired we are of losing games that we hear we’re playing OK in and do something about it.’’

Honeymoon’s over, but Eaves still happy

The three-year Boston College star was on his honeymoon with wife Katie in Bora Bora. He was still a member of the Hurricanes, who had acquired him from Ottawa with Joe Corvo for Mike Commodore and Cory Stillman on Feb. 11, 2008. In May, Eaves and the Hurricanes had upset the Bruins in the second round of the 2008-09 playoffs.

Bruins draw a blank
The Bruins had ample chances last night, including two solid post shots, but they continued to fire blanks and were stymied by Chris Osgood and the Red Wings, 2-0.

The effort was there, but the puck would not go in and the B’s were shut out for a second straight game.

Saving talk of Olympics
DETROIT - Some critics already have written off Tim Thomas [stats] as the starting goalie for Team USA at the upcoming Vancouver Olympics, concluding that the Yanks will go with either Craig Anderson of Colorado or Buffalo’s Ryan Miller.

Both certainly have had better starts than Thomas, but the B’s star doubts any decisions have been made yet by the USA staff.

A salute to B's vet Recchi
Available, insightful, and fun to be around, Recchi simply is a good guy. You can feel that goodness when he talks about his 21 years in The Show.

“I’m proud to say I was able to play this long,” he said. “It’s been neat to be part of the process, as the game has changed quite a bit.”

Bruins continue to come up short on offense
The timing is simply too coated in irony to ignore.

The Bruins dropped another game to the Detroit Red Wings by a 2-0 score and lost two straight games for the first time this season in the process, and haven’t scored a goal in exactly 132:58 and counting. Once again they completely whiffed with an 0-for-3 on the power play — which drops them to 0-for-their-last-17 power play chances — and couldn’t muster up any notable offense over the course of the game aside from a pair of early Marco Sturm opportunities and a few post-worthy bids.
