Caps coach: Bruins going after Backstrom’s head
“I don’t think you have to wake `Looch’ up. `Looch’ is always awake. He’s a pretty composed guy. But if you poke the bear, eventually he’s going to get at you,” Zanon said. “You just don’t want to aggravate him, because he’s going to be aware at all times out on the ice now.”
Both teams were definitely talking the talk between Games 3 and 4.
“I don’t think we want to be a team that plays after the whistle, but we definitely want to play with that edge and that hunger between the whistles, and sometimes there are shoving matches,” Bruins center Chris Kelly said. “That’s just hockey, just playoff hockey. I know this group will never be back down from that, but we don’t want to be known as a team that after the whistle is getting involved in stuff like that. We want to play hard between and be that big, physical, honest hockey team.”
Julien addressed that topic with his players before Game 3, noting that they weren’t necessarily playing with as much, well, emotion as they did during last year’s run through the postseason.
“I said the emotional level of the series wasn’t where I wanted it to be, knowing our hockey club, and we had to elevate that and get a little bit more involved,” the coach said Tuesday. “And when we’re emotional, and we’re more involved, we win battles, and we create more things. So that’s what happened yesterday.”
And there could be more of the same later this week.
“We expect them to come out hard again on Thursday night,” Washington’s Brouwer said, “and you should see a very spirited, excited team out of us on Thursday, as well.”
