BOSTON (CBS) – Following their 4-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night, the Boston Bruins have now dropped three of their last four and are just 3-5 in their last eight games.

Tuesday was the latest in a string of uninspiring losses for the Bruins, who are now tied with Tampa Bay at the top of the Atlantic Division.

Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk, who sent John Van Riemsdyk’s glove into the stands Tuesday night,  joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich on Wednesday, and said the current skid is likely just a mid-season slump that gets to every team.

“It happens at least once a year to, I think, every team,” said Boychuk. “You have to minimize the losses and try to work through it. Once you work through it you go on a roll, and you try not to worry about things and take it one game at a time.”

The slump began as soon as the Bruins lost defenseman Dennis Seidenberg for the season. Boston has dealt with numerous injuries to their blue-line this season, but Boychuk said that’s no excuse for poor play.
