Julien: 'Adversity has helped us'

The ups and downs of the Bruins season may have actually helped them get ready for playoff hockey, according to coach Claude Julien. Julien, who spoke to the media on Sunday after practice at TD Garden, said that everything that has happened this year might actually benefit his team in this tough first-round matchup with Buffalo.

 

"It's certainly helped," Julien said of the adversity this season. "The fact that we went through a lot of that stuff certainly builds character and resiliency. There's not doubt it's helped us get through the tough times and it's made us a better hockey club."

 

The Bruins know all too well what the injury bug can do to a team — see Marc Savard — and the bug might actually be hitting their opponent at the right time. Buffalo left winger Thomas Vanek's status is still not known for Game 3, but Julien said he isn't going to worry about the other team's players....

Statement from ref regarding KG ejection

Referee Joe DeRosa, who ejected Celtics forward Kevin Garnett with 40 seconds remaining in the Celts' 85-76 win over the Heat Saturday night at the TD Garden, issued the following statement regarding the disciplinary action: "He was ejected for throwing an elbow that made contact with Quentin Richardson. He had already had one technical foul for taunting with Quentin Richardson before that. Then as the altercation went on he threw an elbow that did make contact with Richardson, which was his second technical foul and he was ejected."

 

Asked if Garnett connected with Richardson when he threw the elbow, DeRosa said through a pool reporter, "Yes, that's what the video replay that we saw looked like, that he clearly made contact with Richardson. But even if he had not he still would have been ejected for a second technical foul for throwing an elbow."

Richardson on Pierce, KG: 'I don't like them'

Speaking after his team dropped an 85-76 decision to the Celtics, Miami guard Quentin Richardson spoke of his dislike for both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. It was the skirmish that Richardson got into with Garnett, with Pierce on the floor with an apparent injury, that led to Garnett being ejected from the game with 40 seconds remaining.

 

"I don't like them," Richardson said, "and they know it."

 

As for the incident, Richardson wasn't sold on the severity of Pierce's injury, which was identified as a shoulder issue by the Celtics forward after the first-round Eastern Conference playoff game. 

 

"He's on the ground crying and I don't know what's going on," the Heat guard said. "Two actresses over there, that's what they are." When asked he was surprised the confrontation escalated, Richardson responded, "I'm not surprised at people's actions when I know...
