The Bruins lost Tuesday's game because they were terrible for most of the opening 40 minutes, not because Torey Krug lost a fight. During the 6-2 loss Krug took on the much bigger Chris Stewart (the former future Bruin has 5 inches and 45 pounds on Krug) and predictably lost. While fans during the game wanted Krug's defeat avenged -- and for all we know maybe Stewart was challenged at another point during the game -- Krug and Claude Julien both took no issue with the fight after the game. "I started it," Krug said. "He didn't want to fight me. It was a mismatch, but at the end of the day, I don't know, I didn't like what happened there and it got a little crazy." Said Julien: "Torey dropped the gloves against him. It's disappointing to see that kind of fight, but when your player drops his gloves against you, what is he supposed to do? He defended himself, and some people might have done it a little differently, but it doesn't matter. To me, Torey dropped the gloves like he wanted to fight, and I don't think that took any juice out of our team. I think if anything it kind of gave a little bit more animosity to the rest of the game."
