The way Game 4 played out for the Boston Bruins, you could wonder about how they’re handling things. After all, they appeared to have issues with Chicago’s speed and made countless errors on defense that led to being beaten 6-5 in overtime.
Coach Claude Julien says he’s not sweating how his team handles things headed into tonight’s Game 5.
“We’ve had our ups and downs. Are we disappointed when we struggle, absolutely, but I don’t think there’s ever been a panic where we’re concerned,” he said.
“It’s a combination of a lot of things, but panic isn’t something that our team does.”
That ability to stay even-keeled is something Boston will need to draw from in front of a raucous crowd at United Center tonight. Of course, getting their defensive play tightened up and cutting down on the turnovers would do wonders as well. But hey, playing cool in a big spot is important as well.
