In the final installment of our 2011-12 Bruins report cards we give our marks for Bruins head coach Claude Julien and general manager Peter Chiarelli. Together, this tandem has helped lead the Bruins to five consecutive playoff appearances and the organization's first Stanley Cup in 39 seasons in 2011. This was bound to be a trying season for both as expectations were high coming off last season’s title. While the Bruins had their peaks and valleys, they were still able to win the Northeast and finish as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. But the Bruins’ failure to advance past the first round and to make the necessary adjustments prior to and during the playoffs prevented Julien and Chiarelli from earning top grades like last season.
