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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
