Julien has had enough

Claude Julien [1] has had enough.

The Bruins head coach, who won the Jack Adams [2] Award last year as the NHL’s best coach, has had enough of his team not coming out hungry. He’s had enough of his team feeling frustrated for hitting posts and crossbars. He’s had enough of injuries and weak power players. And, of course, he’s had enough of losing games.

But maybe most telling following Monday’s 4-1 lackluster loss to a hungrier, tougher Islanders team on Monday night, Julien had enough of answering for his players.

Julien doesn’t want to hear his players talk anymore about coming out flat [3].

Julien said his team is not playing smart hockey [4].

Julien said his team has no identity right now [5].

David Krejci said the Bruins just aren’t doing the little things right now to find goal-scoring success [6].

Krejci said it’s inexcusable not to score on the 5-on-3 power play they had [7].

Derek Morris said the Bruins were just outworked by the Islanders [8].

Morris said the Bruins were just flat the whole game [9].

Blake Wheeler said the Bruins just aren’t doing enough of the dirty work [10].
