B's brace for behind-scenes camera
By Joe McDonald
BOSTON -- While Bruins players enjoyed NESN's new all-access series “Behind the B” that aired the first of 13 episodes Monday night, there is a sense in the locker room that there will be an adjustment period with cameras rolling behind the scenes this season.
Bruins coach Claude Julien said he’ll be aware of the cameras but has no intention of changing his coaching style.
“I’m not going to lie, it does represent a bit of a challenge because we’re not used to having cameras everywhere following us, so there’s an adjustment there. But what’s important is to know when to trust that those people will do the right thing when it comes time to showing those things on TV for our fans.
“As a coach, if I go in there and I’m different, the players will read through that right away and I can’t do that. I’m going to be myself. I think the players have to be themselves. They’ve got to feel comfortable but there’s no doubt it’s going to be a bit of an adjustment at first until we get used to it a little bit more.”
The team has not yet released the schedule for the remaining 12 episodes, with each running 30 minutes in length.
