Am I Missing Something?

Julien quote: «On a été obligés de jouer du hockey de séries. On a très bien joué lors des deux ou trois dernières semaines. On était au pied du mur et, malgré cette bonne série, on a quand même fini huitièmes.»

"We were obligated to play playoff hockey. We played very well for the last 2 or 3 weeks. We were up against the wall, and despite this successful stretch, we still only finished 8th."

Um, when did Boston play well in March/April?

They won 7 of their last 19 games, and 2 of those wins were by a shootout...

I liked Claude as a coach and he has done wonders with a depleted team that was not great to begin with. However, I must ask myself if he hasn't lost it completely...

Coming into March the Bruins were talking conference lead...

From mid-March until the end of the season when Boston needed points to stay in the playoff picture (and keep pace with WAS) the B's were 5-2-4, taking points in 9 of 11 games. I believe that's what Julien was referring to?

Yea looking at their stats in the last 2 weeks... 4 victories 2 OT losses and 1 loss (total of 7 games) 10 points out of a possible 14 which is pretty good in 2 weeks.


You saw a bigger picture... and yea 6 victories in last 18 games is a different way of seeing it (or 12 victories in 24 games )
