Julien ready to drop the gloves

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Bruins coach Claude Julien is definitely in playoff mode.

When asked this morning what he thought about the Sabres’ Ryan Miller having more experience in net than Bruins rookie Tuukka Rask, Julien gave his goaltender a boost of confidence.

“Who cares? Really. If they think it’s an advantage then good for them,” Julien said. “We feel very confident in Tuukka and we also feel very confident in the guy [Tim Thomas] that’s with him. We feel like we’ve got a good 1-2 punch. For us that’s comfortable enough.”
