The war of words has started between the two teams. Game seven should be pretty tame compared to last night's game. Unless the game gets out of hand for one team, either way, I don't see any extra bravo sierra happening in game seven. I could be wrong. I always like the exchange of words between the two teams. Always entertaining. Reminds me of North Dakota and Minnesota in hockey.
NESN.COM -- The Canadiens appeared to send their message via Twitter, while Bruins coach Claude Julien defended his club when speaking with reporters in his postgame news conference.
“All I said was that we’re perceived like the bad guys, and they’re the good guys,” Julien said. “When Markov trips Chara and puts his stick between his legs, somebody’s going to react. Whether it’s right or wrong, Zdeno reacted and then everything else happened.”
That wasn’t the only thing that had Julien a little ticked, as he accused Montreal’s David Desharnais of slew-footing Boston’s Brad Marchand late in the period, too.
“There was a slew-foot before, Desharnais on Marchand. It was a slewfoot. Those are things we keep talking about that are dangerous in our game. It’s a rivalry and there are some things going on on both sides. I’m not portraying ourselves as innocent here, I’m just saying it takes two teams to tangle and that’s what happened.”
