Absolutely. If it does happen, Claude Julien and Peter Chiarelli had better be gone.

I don't see how he wouldn't be fired. Last year, they lose 1st round as a 2nd seed. If they lose game 7 now, they would have blown a 3-1 lead.

3 of the 4 second round matchups are set:


Blackhawks/Red Wings
Kings/Sharks
Pens/Sens


The two winners from the other game 7s will play each other. So these are the possibilities:


Caps/Bruins
Caps/Leafs
Bruins/Rangers
Leafs/Rangers

We only won a Cup because Tim Thomas turned in an all-time GOAT string of efforts in goal. We won that Cup despite Claude's system hockey, not because of it and I'll tell you this, too...Tuuka Rask is the last guy I blame for this because he's been as solid as you could ask him to be.

Cam has no choice but to drop Julien if we can't win this. Jagr with Peverly and Kelly while Seguin is out there doing nothing at all on a Top 2 line? Splitting Chara and Seidenberg for any reason at all? Just a few of the adjustments that Claude should have made by now and he refuses to.

4-1 lead in the 3rd... it's going to be nuts in Toronto if we can hold this off, which we should.

Damn, that's just what the Bruins needed... going to be in our own zone for the rest of the game now.

Many thousands of tonight. Claude might as well not bother showing up for work and if Chiarelli doesn't start clearing some of these contracts out soon, Cam needs to cross-check him out a fourth story window. This isn't disappointing so much as its truly infuriating.

Three games of garbage effort by the Bruins, three games of hard-nosed, well-played playoff hockey from the Leafs. Your team and your fans deserve this.

Also, every Bruins fan who shit on Kessel? Eat it.

Nothing but props for the Bruins.

Leafs blowing a 2 goal lead and losing in OT is bad enough but now blow a 3 goal lead .

I'm with a friend right now watching this game and he was just telling me how many people on his facebook were saying "so do we face in the 2nd round New York or Washington".

I knew this lead wasn't safe whatsoever and dumbass Leaf fans are pre celebrating.

Same here.

Won't be surprised if this OT won't last long in Boston's favor.

That comeback may have saved Julien's job.

I'm not buying it. Without Tuuka Rask, we lose this series. Time for Claude to go.
