With no Paul Pierce in the building to stop them, the Bruins did the right thing and honored Claude Julien, who was fired last February, with a video tribute. Regardless of how things ended between the B's and Julien, this was still a coach that won more game than any other coach in franchise history, and helped capture the franchise's first Stanley Cup in 39 years in 2011. He also played a major hand in developing some of the B's core pieces, such as Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, and Brad Marchand. After the game, which ended with Julien's squad getting absolutely torched by the Bruins, the ex-B's coach gave his thanks to the city he called home for 10 years.
