Despite loss, Bruins upbeat in returning home

(Continued)

Bruins rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who set up Tyler Seguin’s goal that put the Bruins briefly in front in the third, was particularly tough on himself about Chris Kreider’s overtime winner. Hamilton had decent position on Kreider but wasn’t physical enough to disrupt either Kreider’s speed or his stick, and the Rangers rookie deflected the winner past Rask.

“That’s a play I need to make,” Hamilton said Thursday night. “I feel like I let the team down.”

Dennis Seidenberg, Chara’s regular partner, skated Friday and pronounced himself day-to-day, meaning there’s a better chance he’ll play for the first time in the series. But even if he doesn’t, Julien is pleased with the three rookie defensemen — Hamilton, Matt Bartkowski and Torey Krug, who has three goals in the series — and doesn’t see them as liabilities.

“For us, it’s remaining honest and objective and saying there’s some mistakes made, but also there have been a lot of great things happening,” Julien said. “A lot more great things than bad things, and we want to rally back tomorrow and play an even better game so that we can win this series, and that’s all we’re thinking about right now.”
