Were a pretty fortunate bunch here, I recall, I believe Ference referring to Julien`s calmness behind the bench when he called that TO in game 3 behind a few goals(a timeout every coach would have called but..), how when the players saw their coach remaining calm, it settled them down too, can see Torts in that situations, ripping his players a new one, of course, some fans here would love it describing his approach as "passionate" which, no doubt it is, but you need not yell, scream nor be a sideshow behind the bench to be effective IMO.
The Neely intervention in Jan of 2010 and again in 2011 forced Julien to modify his game plan for the remainder of that season. A historic goaltending performance probably saved his job in the subsequent SC victory.
