Q.   Three overtimes, Game 1... Just speak to the level of energy and

effort to get onboard in this series?

      COACH  JULIEN:   If you look at our game, I thought the first period,

we  just  weren't  there.  We were on our heels.  They had total control of

that period.  Tuukka kept us in there.

      I  thought  the  second,  we  started turning it around.  Third, same

thing.   We  got  better as the game went on.  Overtime, that was the best,

had a lot of scoring chances there.

      Like  I  told  our  guys, we got to show up on time for these kind of

games.  It could have cost us tonight.

      Again,  we  got rewarded because I thought from the second period on,

we  were  a  good team, a better team, and by the end I thought we had more

chances.

 

      Q.   Was  there  anything  specifically you did differently after the

first?

      COACH  JULIEN:   Yeah,  we started playing.  I mean that in the right

way.   We  were  on  our  heels.  We were second to the puck.  We were just

throwing  pucks  out  of  our  own  end.  We weren't making plays.  We were

standing  still  in  our  own end.  A couple of point-blank shots.  We were

just not ready to play.

      After  the first period, a bit of a chat, we got ourselves going.  We

got our feet moving at the start, then the rest followed, and eventually it

just got better.

 

      Q.  How did you like the combination of Paille, Kelly and Seguin?

      COACH  JULIEN:   We  didn't  have much going.  At one point I thought

that  line  would  give us something.  They responded well.  Got both goals

tonight.   It's  a  hunch from a coach.  I know that Dan is a great skater,

can  make a lot of things happen.  Seguin after the first period was one of

the guys that picked up his game.

      Kelly  was one of the guys that was good right from the start.  I put

those three guys together and they answered.

 

      Q.   Can  you talk about Kelly?  Was it nice to see him rewarded this

way?

      COACH JULIEN:  Yeah, because I think he's been snake bitten for quite

a  while.   When  you  don't  score,  eventually you get scored on, and the

minuses keep creeping up.  That was certainly something that bothered him.

      I  thought  he  played well tonight.  He's played well in some games.

He hasn't been able to produce.  So tonight is a good night for him, a good

time to obviously have a great game.

      His  effort  and  his  will  to  be a better player was always there.

You're  just waiting and hoping for that moment.  Tonight was a great night

for that to happen.

 

      Q.   You got these goals from unlikely sources.  Can you speak to the

work that Daniel did on the winning goal?

      COACH JULIEN:  You look at last game when they won, their heroes were

guys  from  third,  fourth  lines.  Same thing for us.  That's why you need

depth in the playoffs.

      Top lines are playing head-to-head, top D.  It's not always that easy

to score.

      Dan  skated  well tonight.  His forecheck created turnovers.  He also

was a lot stronger on the puck as far as battling, coming up with it.

      That  was  a great shot from him and obviously a great pass by Tyler.

That line, like I said, came up huge for us tonight.

 

      Q. Is it about the battles?

      COACH  JULIEN:   That's  what it's all about.  We need to battle.  We

need  to  win those battles, come up with the puck, make those plays.  That

puck ended up in front and Kelly went in there and banged at it.

 

      Q.   Chris  Kelly,  long  time without a goal.  Could you tell he was

pressing all these weeks?

      COACH  JULIEN:   No  doubt.  Just because he doesn't see himself as a

goal-scorer  doesn't  mean  he  has  to continue to have a goose egg on his

stats.  There's no doubt that that bothered him, but not to the point where

it was going to stop him from coming in every game and giving an effort.

      Sometimes  that stuff, whether you like it or not, will weigh on you.

When you get a night like that, it certainly takes a lot of weight off your

shoulders  and  creates  some  positive  thinking  and some positive energy

moving forward.

      Like I said, he and that line of Seguin and Paille were very good for

us.   Felt comfortable enough to send them against a second line when I had

no choice, and didn't mind having to leave them out there.

 

      Q.   Overtime had a little tilt for the Bruins.  What was said in the

locker room to bring it on there?

      COACH  JULIEN:   Not much more then like I said earlier.  I think the

first  period was a period that we were really disappointed with.  From the

second  period  on, we seemed to slowly get better and better.  The further

the game went, the better we got.

      That's  just  the  way  it  was.   Obviously  when you come into this

building, you like to at least get a split.  Our guys were committed enough

to work and get it.

 

      Q.   They  were skating so well, moving the puck so well in the first

period.  Did you catch up to them or did your physical play bring them back

towards you?

      COACH JULIEN:  I don't know.  Like I said earlier, I think we started

skating.   It  kind of at least leveled the play a little bit more.  In the

first, they were skating and we weren't.  It was totally lopsided.

      It was a hard period to coach and to watch.  I think after that first

period, we just decided to get our legs moving, moving the puck forward.

      I still thought we battled the puck in the second period.  We weren't

managing  it  well.  But our legs were moving.  Slowly things started going

our way.

 

      Q.   In  the first period, obviously the differential was staggering.

The  work  that  Tuukka  did  keeping  you  in  that first period, were you

concerned  about  him being able to stand up to the buzz they were creating

around the net?

      COACH  JULIEN:   I  think obviously our players responded to that.  I

think we gave them four shots in the second, four shots in the third, maybe

two or three in the overtime.  I haven't checked that out yet.  We at least

gave him a little bit of an opportunity to catch his breath again.

      That  first  period,  like  I  said, was extremely hard for him.  But

thankfully  our guys rewarded him with that effort by being a lot better in

front of him for the rest of the game.
