Claude Julien calls Montreal’s embellishment ’embarrassing’

After the 4-3 loss to Montreal, Claude Julien didn’t care for what he believed was acting by the Canadiens.

“Tonight, as everybody saw, there was a lot of embellishment,” said the Bruins coach.
“This is embarrassing for our game, the embellishing. Right now, they’ve got over 100 power plays so far. It’s pretty obvious why. We’re trying to clean that out of our game. It’s got to be done soon. Because it’s not about tonight. It’s about the game. The embellishment embarrasses our game. We’ve got to be better about that. It’s pretty obvious when P.K. [Subban] gets hit, he throws himself into the glass and holds his head. You know what? We start calling those things for embellishment, maybe teams stop doing it. Until we take charge that, it’s going to be an issue.”

Julien said he didn’t mind Zdeno Chara going after Alexei Emelin after the defenseman’s hit on Tyler Seguin.
