As for the habs embellishing, sure, that certainly happens. But like someone else said, every team does this. The habs aren't more guilty than any other. The only reason why some seem to think this is because they have such hatred for the Habs that there can be no objectivity on their part.
Though I agree with your assessment about embellishing, I think the point of Julien doing this is to back up his own players. He's upset about the loss and understandably so because of a cheap shot affecting the game. It isn't so much the fact that its B's and Habs. That part is obvious. The only thing is that Chara wouldn't have had the penalty would Emelin not have cheapshotted Seguin. Personally that's how I saw it as Seguin had just made a great move and was coming strong through the neutral zone.
I think he was referring more to the fact, and I could be wrong, the fact that these actions were taken, and the Bruins, unfortunately responded and ended up losing. Emelin's move was a dirty move, yes, and Chara came off directly because of his reaction. But the defense to that really is Chara's way of defending his teammate is technically what cost them the game, and not the cheapshot.
