Low profile and high times: Coach Claude Julien has Bruins nearing another Stanley Cup

BOSTON - Claude Julien doesn't pay much attention to compliments or criticism. And he's had plenty of both.

Just give him a pair of skates, players to teach and a spot behind the bench and the coach of the Boston Bruins is thrilled.

The low-key Julien says that if he could come to work every day and leave the rink without anyone knowing who he was he'd be very happy.

But it's tough to be anonymous when you're three wins away from your second Stanley Cup championship in three years. The Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks play Game 3 of the Cup finals on Monday night with the series tied at one game apiece.

The Blackhawks won the opener 4-3. The Bruins took the next game 2-1. Both were overtime games in Chicago.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
