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.
