BOSTON (CBS)  – Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg joined “The Hockey Show” Wednesday night to shed some light on the team’s poor performance lately.

Seidenberg said he is not sure why the Bruins have been struggling to start the season, but they have to remain focused in order to turn around.

“We have to go shift by shift,” said Seidenbger “We have to be more focused and play in the moment. We can’t think what happens if we played bad, what happens if we lose a game, what happens if we win a game. We just have to go out there and do our job and score some goals.”

With their long postseason run, and facing a trio of do-or-die Game 7′s, Seidenberg says the Bruins have the confidence to bounce back, now they just have to do it.

“We definitely have a lot of confidence in our room. We know how we can play and we also know we can get out of situations and bad stretches of games,” he said. “Now we just need to put it out on the ice.”

The Bruins lost their cool in Tuesday night’s 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, serving 17 penalties and 70 penalty minutes.  The Bruins had similar fight-riddled games in 2010, against Dallas and Montreal, but Seidenberg said there was a big difference in those matchups.

“You can’t lose sight of the big picture. At the end you want to get two points,” he said. “Last year the same thing happened, but we used that emotion to score goals.”

“We lost our cool, but we didn’t respond on the ice and didn’t get anything going after that.”

The Bruins will try to regain their cool, and their winning ways, Thursday night when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Garden.
