Claude Julien and the Boston Bruins have made a remarkable run in the 2011 postseason, one that's landed them in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Vancouver Canucks. It's been a surreal experience, but Julien knows that there is still work to be done.
"It sunk in that we're there," Julien said to reporters. "It's also sunk in that we're not done. We realize that there's a lot of work ahead of us."
The Bruins' punched their ticket to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals with a 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night. While the team celebrated the win, it didn't last for long.
"We were done celebrating the next day," said Julien. "That night was an opportunity for us to enjoy the moment, rightfully so. But next day, it was about getting our rest."
