BOSTON (CBS) – Torey Krug joined Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak a day after losing a tough game against Toronto in overtime. Krug watched the game winner from the penalty box, as he was whistled for what appeared to be a marginal holding call.
Krug said after he was frustrated with a number of aspects of the game, citing, “Dougie (Hamilton) getting 5 stitches on the side of his cheek, the overtime call on me, nobody is happy about it. Those are things over the course of the game the officials have control. Unfortunately for us we were on the wrong side of it.”
He was honest with the guys about the grind of their schedule, saying that the team was pretty tired after playing back to back games again. Krug enjoyed playing the teams though, as Detroit and Toronto are clubs the Bruins could likely see in the first round of the playoffs.
The defenseman is excited for what lies ahead, saying that he’s been loving, “Sitting next to Patrice (Bergeron) talking about how excited we are about the playoffs, growing out our beards and coming to the hockey rink. There is that excitement, and I know everybody in the room feels that same way.”
He also admitted that he didn’t even know that the Bruins magic number to clinch the top seed was three points. Instead he’s taking it one day at a time but made sure to point out that home-ice advantage is very important to the team.
When asked about Toucher and Rich’s Motley Krug creation, he laughed “I try not to listen to it because I know I’ll be so embarrassed.”
They also talked about Krug’s new haircut, growing a playoff beard and Scott Zolak’s favorite Bruin, Carl Soderberg.
