On Tuesday afternoon, Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said the Bruins were cheating on faceoffs in Game 3, because as the visitors, they were supposed to put their sticks down first. After he reviewed video, Carlyle said that wasnít happening.
In response, Bruins coach Claude Julien said he didnít think his centers were doing anything wrong.
ďIíve looked at the video, too," said Julien. "It is what it is. Guys getting kicked out, not getting kicked out. When you lobby for something, itís because youíre looking for a bit of a break the next game. Thatís what Randyís doing right now. Heís lobbying for some breaks on the faceoffs.
"Itís going to be interesting to see where the referees and the linesmen do their job next game and not worry about whoís crying wolf.Ē
The Bruins won 60 percent of the faceoffs in Game 3.
* Jaromir Jagr said heís still not 100 percent. Jagr, who missed the last two regular-season games because of flulike symptoms, said he was laid low for five or six days because of the illness.
* The Bruins held an optional practice Tuesday. No lineup changes are expected for Game 4.
