Julien Now in Fourth Place

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins -- With the Bruins 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, Boston Head Coach Claude Julien passed former Bruins coach Harry Sinden for fourth place all-time on the Bruin’s coaching wins list. 

Julien has a 154-89-0-41 record in 283 games with Boston. His lifetime record has improved to 272-175-10-64 in 521 games split between Montreal, New Jersey and Boston. 

Tuesday's win marked the end of a long road-swing for the B’s who played in five cities over eight days. The Black & Gold went 3-0-2 on the trip and picked up eight of a possible ten points. 

“Well you gotta be happy," Julien said after yesterday’s game. "[But] we’re always a little bit selfish, which is not a bad thing and...we realize that we could have had those extra points and in Atlanta [where] we played well enough to win and you know when you score six goals in Buffalo you hope that you can come out with the win.

“So, not to say I’m disappointed, but just a little greedy and that’s not a bad thing.”

Monday's victory also saw a rebound from the Bruin’s "white" line of  Marc Savard, Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton.  The line struggled early in the trip, but came up big in last night’s win with two goals, two assists and a +5 rating. 

“We have a lot of good things happen tonight, had Savvy’s line produce for us you know they’ve been getting chances, but production wasn’t there and tonight we got that from those guys as well,” Julien said.  

The Bruins return home on Thursday for a one game stint against the Minnesota Wild, before heading out on a two game road swing to Montreal and Pittsburgh.
