Bruins head coach fumes about Montreal’s ’embellishment’

The Montreal Canadiens didn’t just snatch first place in the Northeast Division and Eastern Conference with a 4-3 win against the Boston Bruins on Sunday. Some would argue they also got in their heads.

The rage boiled over when Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara got into fights about 30 seconds apart, but the angriest person might just be head coach Claude Julien. He griped about Montreal drawing penalties to CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty.

“There was a lot of embellishment,” Julien said. “It’s pretty embarrassing for our game.”

Haggerty believes that Julien’s irritation isn’t just related to tonight’s contest.

The Bruins’ next game against Montreal takes place in Boston on March 27. After that, their final match of the 2013 season will happen in Montreal on April 6.
