Some believe that the Boston Bruins have been up-and-down for much of this season. After seeing his team’s 3-1 series lead disappear into a 3-3 tie, head coach Claude Julien couldn’t help but agree.

“As I said to our players after the game, we’ve been Jekyll & Hyde hockey club all year and that’s what we’re seeing right now, so I think it’s important for us to bring the good team to the table tomorrow for Game 7,” Julien said.

Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg hopes Monday’s effort won’t be monstrous.

“Well, we have to show the good side tomorrow night,” Seidenberg said.

It’s too bad Julien didn’t make a reference to “An American Werewolf in London” instead, but that would probably be asking for too much.

    As I have been saying since he has been coach of the Bruins, any success this team has had, has been in spite of Klode, not because of him. That includes the Stanley Cup year. He is still the same mediocre coach with the same system that breeds mediocrity. He is the same coach that the Devils fired late in the season, even though the team was in first place. Tim Thomas is the main reason the Bruins won the Cup in 2011, no credit to Klode. He is the perfect coach for the Jacobs brothers, who have figured out how to make millions by just being mediocre for decades. Knowledgeable Bruins fan just wish these owners and this coach would just pack up and leave.
