Morning Line- Claude Julien

"When you've got to score two goals every night to get one, it’s tough to win hockey games. We got some tough calls against us and our guys played hard right till the end. Unfortunately, we didn’t get that second point that I thought we deserved."

-Claude Julien, head coach of the Boston Bruins after losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 in OT.  More on the game from Caryn Switaj of BostonBruins.com.

You can view two of those "tough calls" below....

 both via the Situation Room Blog,

At 10:00 of the first period in the Pittsburgh Penguins/Boston Bruins game, the referees held a group huddle that determined Patrice Bergeron's stick was above the height of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the net. Video review confirmed that group decision. According to Rule 60.5 "An apparent goal scored by an attacking player who strikes the puck with his stick carried above the height of the crossbar of the goal frame shall not be allowed. The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick." No goal Boston.

 

 

At 10:53 of the second period in the Pittsburgh Penguins/Boston Bruins game, video review confirmed the referee's call on the ice that Carl Soderberg directed the puck into the Pittsburgh net with his glove. According to Rule 67.6 "a goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who bats or directs the puck with his hand into the net." No goal Boston.

I understand being upset about goals being overturned…. hell, kunitz gets one overturned about once every five games and it drives me crazy.  But, how much of a whiner is Claude Julien?  I mean have you ever seen the guys face every time a penalty is called on his team?  Claude is over-the-top annoying.

Isn’t it pretty much a coaches job to let the refs know about it when they don’t like a call? If you’re not trying, you’re not doing your job.

I mean, really:
