Found March 04, 2013 on Goon's World:
After the game last night, Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julian wasn't happy with the Montreal Canadian in general and he said they were embellishing on the ice. I included the check that Boston Bruin's tough guy Shawn Thornton put on Canadian's defenseman P.K. Subban, in my opinion, it looks like Subban over dramatized that hit quite a bit. Was that hit a penalty? I suppose. Because of  P.K. Subban's reputation of being a diver, and a flopper, I personally would compare him to an Alex Burrows type player, I would imagine the ref wasn't inclined to call a penalty on that play, look at the video.  To me it looked like an embellishment and Subban should have received an Academy Award for his acting skills.  “Tonight, as everybody saw there is a lot of embellishment,” Julian said. “This is embarrassing for our game, embellishing. Right now They [Canadians] got over 100 power-plays so far and it’s pretty obvious why. We’re trying to clean this out of our game and it’s got to be done soon." In my opinion, the Habs are becoming the Vancouver Canucks of the east.

Bruins Have Plenty More Reasons to ‘Hate the Habs’ After Letting Lead Slip Away Against Montreal (Video)

2 Pictures That Sum Up Sunday’s Bruins vs. Canadiens Fight Night

A.B. The 2003 ALCS is a distant memory now. The 2010-2011 AFC Divisional Championship still hurts but it wasn’t the Super Bowl. I can finally admit it; I no longer hate the Yankees and Jets as much as I hate the Montreal Canadiens. And while I love watching the Bruins beat The Habs on the scoreboard, there is something almost equally satisfying about a Chara & Lucic pounding...
