The Bruins allowed 57 shots on goal -- the most they've given up in a game since 1965 -- in an ugly 9-2 loss to the Kings Tuesday. After the game, the team hardly sounded like a group pushing for the second spot in the Atlantic Division and more like a fledgling team chasing the prowess it had in years past. "We got absolutely embarrassed," Zdeno Chara said. "They played a really good game, but we had nowhere near the game that we needed to play. It was embarrassing." The B'€™s allowed seven straight goals after taking a 1-0 lead in the first period. The loss dropped them to 1-7-0 against Western Conference playoff teams this season. "There are things that obviously are going to stay inside this locker room, but we just need to be better," Chara said. "We need to perform better. We'€™ve had a few stretches where we'€™ve played well, we won some tight games and some big games and we were facing some challenges or teams on top of the league and we didn'€™t follow up with the performances that we had previous games. That'€™s again tonight'€™s case. It was embarrassing." Said David Krejci: "The way we lost, especially the second and third period, it'€™s just unacceptable. You should go out there even if you'€™re losing 6-1 after the second period and show some pride, you know? Try to show fans that we respect them coming here. We don'€™t want to get booed in our own building. We didn'€™t respond. It was embarrassing."
