Bruins coach downplays any controversy ahead of Game 3

Hey, remember yesterday when we suggested the media was doing its best to stir up the maximum amount of controversy in the Bruins-Canadiens series?

If you missed it, it was in a post where we…um…kinda tried to stir up some controversy based on some remarks Montreal coach Michel Therrien made about the Bruins trying to influence the reffing.

Which in our defense, was a pretty darn controversial thing to suggest.

Still, Boston coach Claude Julien thinks all this controversy stuff is getting a bit overblown.

“We know that since the beginning of the playoffs, lots of things have been exaggerated to build an off-ice rivalry,” Julien said, per CSN New England.

And we’ll concede, maybe he has a point.

Game 3 of the series goes tonight in Montreal, where it should be noted that controversial things have happened before…

So if something controversial happens tonight — like, say, that cheap-shot artist Milan Lucic sticks a guy in the groin again, or that serial flopper PK Subban takes another dive  — be sure to visit PHT.

Not that we’d ever intentionally try to stir things up.

    Y’all can’t post stuff like that…you get a rise out of people like Joey who tries to tell people they don’t know what they are talking about when in fact he takes the bait, hook, line and sinker into the media overplay of a situation.

    I would post examples from the previous post…but then I’d be to much like Joey…so I’ll pass.

      It’s too much like Joey. Not to much like Joey. Right. ;-)

      Bell Centre is rocking already. Go Bruins. Go Habs. Double OT.

        Joey – I hear you friend. It’s very similar to these ‘electronic’ parasites who constantly complain about me being on every single post (absolute rubbish), yet they start crying ‘where’s Blomfeld’ the minute I don’t post at their pleasing …

        PHT – You guys rock man, seriously ! Anyone can get regurgitated hockey news anywhere. However your blend of ‘humor’ with fact is both unique and ‘immensely’ entertaining ! Don’t ever change you guys ! :)

        Executive Summary: Joey and the entire PHT team rock !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        My name is Joey and I endorse Blomfeld’s comment. Go Bruins. Go Habs. Go Blomfeld.

      • blomfeld - May 6, 2014 at 8:29 PM

        My name is Blomfeld and I endorse Joey’s comment ! :)

        GO JOEY !!!

        GO TEAM PHT !!!

        GO ‘AWAY’ OVECHKIN !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!

      • blomfeld - May 6, 2014 at 8:38 PM

        and by the way Joey, I’ll have you know that you’re quite the ‘innovator’ here ! … your patented technique of corroborating your arguments with forensic ‘personal’ testimony now seems to be all the rage … yes sir ! … I’ve recently noticed that even the PHT writers have adopted this ‘effective’ technique !

        GO JOEY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

      Is that Julien wanting to protect his rookies? Or was that the press stirring up controversy?

      Following the Bruins’ 5-3 win in Game 2, Bruins defensemen Dougie Hamilton and Torey Krug indicated that they had solved Price after the Canadiens goalie had seemed to mesmerize them with a 48-save performance in his team’s 4-3 double-overtime win over the Bruins. -James Murphy Boston Herald

      Well boys! We are waiting…….

    Isn’t what you are doing sort of like being a Troll?

    • Jason Brough - May 6, 2014 at 5:39 PM

      Yes. But it’s not really as fun if you point it out.

    Tonight should be another great game. Looking forward to scrolling through the comments here after something crazy inevitably happens.
