Not splitting up Z and Seids was bad as well. As was not recognizing Marchands struggling and Pevs reemergence.

They would have won if they sent someone into the offensive zone with 1:30 left. Instead they all peeled off and got ready for a push. Horrible call. At least send one person in.

Julien will continue to coach for another year. Twice he has been 1 goal away from losing his job, twice he got lucky. Barring the last 2 minutes of play from the B's. Julien should look at this game as a benchmark for how good this team can play.

I'm not the biggest Clode fan, but to blame him is asinine. He did a great job, he had to many guys who only showed up part of the time. The one complaint I would have was not cutting Z's time, ESP. On the PP.

Not splitting up the two worst defensemen in the series is absolutely appaling.

Only adjustment I thought he should have made was split up Chara-Seidenberg. I think he was hoping they could bounce back but it didn't happen.

Tonight ... heck, they should've won 3 of the 4 games they lost. Chicago took advantage of opportunities, but the Bruins handed this series away.

So they blow leads and miss open nets, but they should have won in 5?

Saying why they lost doesn't mean they should have won.

Game 1, Chicago was done. D-O-N-E. You could see it in their body language until a sloppy line change led to Krug's turnover. Then, two minutes later, Ference turns his head away from the puck and kicks it into his own net. That game was a W.

Tonight, you're 80 seconds away from winning, and 17 seconds later, you've lost. Yeah, they should've won, in 4 or 6, but they should've won. They had 2 games flat-out won and blew them.

So if the Bruins don't make mistakes they win?

Wow, what a revelation.

Sloppy line changes, turnovers, score on your own goal, miss empty nets. The Bruins were the ones doing those things, so why would anyone say they should have won?

Tremendous coach MADE to be a Bruin that should have a 10-year contract...I'm exagerating....but not that much.

No point trying to use logic with emotional people. It's like saying IF Crawford had stopped more shots glove side Chicago would have won in 4 or 5 games. Both teams had the chances, one team was more consistent at converting.

Where's the love for the best coach in the NHL? He's done a sensational job with this team, and hopefully he continues his great work throughout the rest of the playoffs.

He doesn't get enough credit, especially after many people wanted him gone years ago, and even after last years playoffs.

Agreed. A lot of people on this board couldn't have been more off about this guy, or Chia for that matter.

Fire Julien. Fire Chiarelli. Hire Bylsma/Laviollette.

Profit?.



My favorite part is when people say he stifles offensive talent and players can't score in his system, even though the statistics since he's been in Boston completely obliterate that ill-informed opinion.

And he doesn't like/can't coach young players.

I like, and I do recognize the different level of talent, that the assistant coach of gold medal-winning Team Canada beat head coach of gold medal-winning Team Canada.

And, he struggles to adjust and only likes his veteran players.

To be fair, he does struggle to adjust, It took him over two seasons of not messing with the P before he took Chara off the point and voila....PP improves!


Still, he is the man. THere's nobody else I would want that's not named Bowman.

Julien plus Chia plus Neely plus Chara/Bergeron/Lucic buying into the Julien system = perfect storm. The pieces have fallen into place while Claude has been here and he's helped put us in a position to be good for years to come. BTW, thanks New Jersey.

And, the complaints over the PP were valid. However, I'd say it had to do more with him giving Ward control of the PP. I know you can say that Julien should have taken over it or done something differently, but I give him credit for sticking with someone he knew could improve the PP. He doesn't give up on his players, and he obviously doesn't give up on his staff.

Let's be honest here, his teams have been putting up some excellent offensive numbers with no real offensive stars. There's no one player that is a game breaking threat every single night, and that is fine. However, it's tough to have a great PP without that one forward with a blistering shot or game breaking ability. He just needs to keep on doing his thing because he does it damn well!
