Julien says Lundqvist’s acting ‘doesn’t need to be on the ice’
The goalie interference penalty called on Brad Marchand late in Friday’s Thanksgiving Showdown didn’t sit well with the Bruins.
Marchand, whistled after making contact with New York’s Henrik Lundqvist midway through the third, said he thought “it was a bit of a weak call,” adding “[Lundvqist’s] out of the crease, and he lightly gets touched.”
While Marchand took issue with the call, his head coach took issue with King Henrik.
Julien on Hank: "I know he does some acting on the side, but it doesn't need to be on the ice." #Bruins
Somebody tell the Boston Bruins there’s a goal-scoring crisis in the NHL.
This afternoon, for the 14th time this season, a Bruins game featured at least six goals. The final score was 4-3, as Boston came back to beat the Rangers in a wildly entertaining Thanksgiving Showdown on NBC.
David Krejci scored the winner with 1:43 remaining. Krejci’s goal came just 2:03 after teammate Ryan Spooner had tied it on the power play.
The win was the Bruins’ fifth straight. Though the defensive mistakes remain…
…Claude Julien’s troops have been finding ways to overcome them.
