Claude Julien, Bruins know what Canucks are going through

Entering this season, the Bruins were known as the team that choked away a 3-0 series lead en route to being eliminated by the Flyers in the playoffs. Now, the Canucks are helping people forget that.

Vancouver held a 3-0 series lead against the No. 8 Blackhawks in their Western Conference quarterfinals series, but Chicago has come storming back. Sunday night, they tied the series at three games apiece with an overtime victory.

“I think I understand what they’€™re going through,” Claude Julien [1] said of the Canucks Monday. “We lived through it. You watch those games and you see how another team can grab momentum pretty quick and confidence and belief. It’€™s there again this year and there’€™s an opportunity again to create what happened last year to our team for another team. Whether that’€™s a trend that’€™s going that way now, I don’€™t know. But it certainly shows that there’€™s parity in this league and nothing is over until it’€™s over.”
