Bruins' Julien coaches youth team

(Continued)

“What they do over there is of their choice. They have to live with the consequences and so do we. At the end of the day you hope that when we start over again everybody’s healthy and we’re a fresh team.”

While he waits, Julien has to stay busy with other things - and Sunday he was the prize in a Bruins Foundation raffle.

“To be honest with you, for me today is a day about being here with the kids and making the most of the situation,” he said. “That’s what I’ve tried to do. (I) came in here and enjoyed a real fun hockey game. That’s all you can do in these situations, is take advantage of what’s given to you and for me it’s an opportunity to get involved a little bit with youth hockey and give back.”

The Bruins went out of their way to make the experience a memorable one for the youth players, who received Bruins shirts with their names on the back. Team strength and conditioning coach John Whiteside put the players through stretching, and the kids even had to sign a “contract,” which entered them into a deal with Bruins president Cam Neely.

“This is awesome,” said Steve Indrisano, the actual coach of the team that won its first game of the season Saturday and won again Sunday. “We’re giddy. This is great.”
