Claude Julien was mad Tuesday night and for good reason. He had just seen his team play one of its worst games of the season, and after the game, the Bruins head coach let his club have it. It’s unclear whether or not Julien lit his boys up in the dressing room (one would assume there’s a good chance that happened, though), but he also took the B’s to task in his postgame news conference. Julien sounded annoyed, frustrated and downright ticked off following his club’s 5-2 loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, and he pulled no punches after the game. “That was definitely a step back in our game,” Julien told reporters. “You know, really poor puck management and poor decision making. To me, that’s a reflection of the guys not being ready to play. At one point, they’ve got to take the accountability of not being ready. We do a lot of work to prepare and it certainly reflects on us as well as a whole team, the coaching staff and everyone else. “Too much of that lately and not enough focus. We’re running out of time to get this stuff going. You always hope that its’ some sort of a wakeup call, but with the way the season’s gone, you’re questioning whether it will or not. Only time will tell.” Julien was also asked about the play of Zdeno Chara, as the Bruins captain had a game Tuesday night that was far from his best. Perhaps he was tired, a reporter proposed to Julien, only to have the coach quickly shoot that down. “Let’s stay away from excuses because it’s not gonna work,” Julien snapped. “Excuses is a lot of BS right now. We need to quit hiding behind those excuses because it’s a load of crap.”
