The word "ugly" was tossed around the Bruins locker room quite a bit after Thursday night's 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers at the TD Garden.

"It certainly wasn't our best game, let's put it that way," said Claude Julien.

"From the start to finish, it wasn't pretty," Julien later added. "But you grind out those wins."

The Bruins grinded out a "sloppy" and "ugly" win on Thursday

But it wasn't all bad.

"Well, we talk about ugly, I thought that was pretty nice though," said Patrice Bergeron with a smile when he was asked about his first of two goals on the night.

Bergeron's second goal was an empty-netter, which put the B's up 4-1 with 57.2 seconds left in the game.

But his first goal was the product of the Bruins' only skill line that's clicking, and that has been clicking for pretty much most of the season.

Bergeron put Boston up 2-0 when he crashed the net with 5:04 left in the first period, and finished a Brad Marchand pass through the slot from the right post.

"That was a great play by Seguin and Marchand," said Bergeron. "I just had to skate to the net, back door. And I knew that Marchand saw me there, so I was just waiting for the puck to come. So that was a perfect play."
