Chiarelli wants Bruins to ‘respond’ to postseason collapse

09.18.10 at 1:16 am ET

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told both the team and the media Friday that his intention is not for the Bruins to forget the Flyers’ incredible comeback from a three-games-to-none defect in the Eastern Conference semifinals. In fact, he wants the team to use it as a reason to avoid complacency and to take the next step.

“One of the things we talked to the group about this morning was not essentially turning the page — this is always going to be in out memory — but building on it,” Chiarelli said. “I don’t think we are ever going to turn the page on it. We are going to build on it and we are going to respond to it.”

The message was well-received by Claude Julien, who noted he wants to make the city proud of their team again, and the players.

“Half of it is not forgetting what happened at the end of the season and half of it’s using it as motivation going forward,” defenseman Mark Stuart said. “It’s a little bit of both.”
