Early Morning Line- Claude Julien

“We didn’t play a good game tonight. We didn’t skate well. When we skate well, things tend to work out. We didn’t skate well enough or compete well enough. Our backchecking wasn’t strong enough, our transition wasn’t good, either. We weren’t coming back fast. We played a mostly AHL lineup on the other side, 20 players who are hungry, who worked hard all game and gave us problems. If we had guys who thought it would be an easy game, they didn’t prepare well and it’s a good lesson for everyone. You can’t prepare yourself after two periods, it’s too late. So tonight wasn’t a good game, and a loss sometimes brings everyone down to Earth and I hope that will be the case.”

-Claude Julien, head coach of the Montreal Canadiens.  Eric Engels of Sportsnet has more on the 3-0 loss to Toronto.
