Claude Julien Calls Out The Habs ***READ MOD POST 255***

Bruins coach Claude Julien went off on the Canadiens following Montrealís 4-3 win over the Bís Sunday night, calling the Canadiens out for*embellishing*to get penalties.

Julien felt that the Bís were at a disadvantage because Alexei EmelinĎs second-period cross-check on Tyler Seguin wasnít called, though Zdeno Chara got an instigator penalty and a 10-minute misconduct for challenging and fighting Emelin after the play.

ďThe frustrating part is that you end up with 17 minutes in the penalty box when you should have been on the power play. Itís as simple as that,Ē Julien said. ďItís frustrating because tonight, as everybody saw, there was a lot of embellishment and this is embarrassing for our game, embellishing. Right now, theyíve got over 100 power plays so far and itís pretty obvious why. Weíre trying to clean that out of our game and itís got to be done soon.

ďItís not about tonight. Itís about the game and the embellishment embarrasses our game, and we need to be better at that because it was pretty obvious when P.K. [Subban] gets hit, he throws himself into the glass and holds his head. You know what? If we start calling those penalties for embellishment, maybe teams will stop doing it, but until we take charge of that, itís going to be an issue.Ē

Right on Claude.
