Let's be honest, the Bruins get motivated to play us because of Julien. Plus there's a difference between playing a playoff team and having a road game against a bad team in a three-four nights situation.


Because of Julien? You really think that they get fired up because their coach got fired by the Devils 5 years ago, something that had nothing at all to do with them?

They weren't fired up. They were flat for most of the game. They got a break and capitalized.

Would you rather switches places with them in the standings?

Life is going to be better when you learn how to relax my friend! :koolaid:



Good point, no I wouldn't want that.
I was feeling kind of relaxed when the Pens were down 4-2 about 10 minutes ago. There we go, back to good old 4th in the Atlantic, 7th in the Conference. Yay! :koolaid: :evilcry:
Freakin' Latang ..that guy is an excellent player.
Subban on the other hand...not a fan. Please dear lord I pray we don't trade for him.

Yea, that's ridiculous.

Julien: "C'mon guys - this team fired me a few years back, let's not let them live that down...they gave up on me and I know you guys won't"

And how many times have we beaten the Bruins the last three years since they actually got good? They never seem to have a letdown against us.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

That's cuz they have just plain been a better team and we happen to be one team that they stack up well against. Certain teams play better against other teams based on the way they are built. I'm sure Julien has some tips he can give his players on Marty and Patty but other than that his past has nothing to do with it - except for personal satisfaction - if even that, which I doubt he even thinks about anymore.
