“I think he needs a little bit of time,” Julien said. “Unfortunately, getting here so late, he needs a little bit more time to adjust . . . He’s a smart individual. He’s caught on pretty quick.’’
Jagr out again
Jagr sat out his second straight game because of flu-like symptoms. Kaspars Daugavins dressed again in Jagr’s place. Julien said Daugavins’s performance against Washington was his best as a Bruin . . . Krejci turned 28 Sunday . . . Dougie Hamilton, Aaron Johnson, and Jay Pandolfo were the healthy scratches . . . The Bruins were given Monday off. They will practice on Tuesday prior to Wednesday’s Game 1 . . . The Bruins announced their regular-season award winners before the game. Patrice Bergeron won the Eddie Shore Award (exceptional hustle and determination, voted by the Gallery Gods) and Elizabeth C. Dufresne Trophy (outstanding performance in home games); Gregory Campbell won the John P. Bucyk Award (off-ice charitable contributions); and Tuukka Rask, Bergeron, and Tyler Seguin were named Bruins Three Stars . . . Despite registering a staggering 58 shots on net, Providence was defeated, 5-4, in overtime by the Hershey Bears on Sunday, and has dropped the first two games of its first-round playoff series on home ice.
