Julien on Game 7: 'Safe is death'

The Bruins chose to skip their morning skate on Friday before Game 7 of their semifinals series against the Flyers. Coach Claude Julien held a morning press conference to discuss the matchup and explained that it was better for his team to rest and stay focused after having a good practice at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington on Thursday and doing the bulk of their preparation at the practice facility.

 

"We want everybody to be difference makers, or go in with that intent anyway," Julien said. "The biggest thing I know is that you go out there and play to win. Sometimes they say the term 'safe is death.' If you want to play it safe it is not going to help your chances of winning."

Stephen A. Smith: Root for Celtics-Lakers

Sports columnist and radio host Stephen A. Smith joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Celtics' victory over the Cavaliers and the future of LeBron James. Smith said James is about to become the biggest free agent in sports history, and the Celtics may have pushed him out of Cleveland. He said he thinks James ultimately will end up with the Knicks or Bulls.

 

"The Boston Celtics may very, very well be responsible for ruining an entire city in the United States of America, and that is Cleveland, Ohio," Smith said. "Because the residual effects of their defeat over the Cleveland Cavaliers will resonate far beyond last night and far beyond just beating a Cleveland Cavaliers team in these particular playoffs. This kind of resounding defeat ultimately, in my opinion, will be the straw that broke the camel's back, the thing that ultimately sends LeBron James packing his bags from Cleveland and moving...

Get the details on that, plus read how Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing's press conference denial of PED use was not believable, and check out videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.
