VANCOUVER — Speaking at the team’s hotel Wednesday, Bruins coach Claude Julien said his team has done all the preparation necessary for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals vs. the Canucks.
The Bruins blanked the Lightning, 1-0, in a Game 7 victory last Friday that figures to be memorable for the team’s nearly flawless and disciplined execution. Julien hopes the B’s can play the same way against Vancouver.
“We talked about it after we won that game. Those are the types of games you have to play in order to win the Stanley Cup,” Julien said. “We’ve obviously proven that we can. Now it’s up to us and do it on a game after game basis. We understand the challenge. We understand what’s at stake. We understand who we’re playing.
“Basically our homework is done. Right now, it’s up to us to go out there and show that we can and believe that we can.”
