Claude Julien: Bruins beat Canadiens in Game 2 despite ‘a lot of crap that we put up with’

Claude Julien was proud of his team for overcoming a two-goal deficit in the third period to take a 5-3 win over the Canadiens in Game 2 Saturday, and he hinted that his team did it in spite of the officials.
The Canadiens had six power plays and scored on two of them. One of the Bruins’ penalties was a bench minor on Julien.
“We had the tough second period, and at the start of the third [they] got that other power-play goal, but the way that we just battled back from, I felt, a lot of crap that we put up with today was pretty indicative of what our team is all about,” Julien said. “It just shows that if you focus on the things you need to focus on, this is a pretty good team that can accomplish a lot.”
Julien wouldn’t specify what the “crap” was, saying that “anybody that watched the game knows what was going on there,” and adding that it was a “tough game.”
He did have a pretty hilarious explanation for his bench minor, which occurred late in the second period.
“The referee,” Julien said, “I kind of told him that I didn’t agree with his calls.”
