Even though the Boston Bruins came away with a 5-3 comeback victory in Game 2 against the Montreal Canadiens, it didn’t come without complaints.
Bruins coach Claude Julien sounded off about the disparity in penalties between his team and the Canadiens. Montreal had six power plays to work with as opposed to three for Boston and Julien made sure it was known he wasn’t happy.
“We battled back through a lot of crap that we had to out up with,” Julien said. When he was asked to elaborate on what he meant, Julien declined to do so.
Julien did admit to being responsible for the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that was called with 3:51 to play in the third period.
Making the penalty difference a bigger problem for the Bruins is the fact the Canadiens scored on two of the six man-advantages they had with Thomas Vanek getting both goals. With the series shifting to Montreal, a bit of politicking might just come in handy for the Bruins.
