Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien reached a major milestone Saturday in his team’s 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild: His 500th career coaching victory.
Asked about it after the game, though, Julien admitted he didn’t have a clue he’d reached it.
“To be honest with you, my phone kept buzzing, and after I got back to the office, I said, ‘What’s going on here?’ ” the coach said in a postgame interview with NESN’s Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley. “All these texts are coming in about my 500th win, and I had no idea, honestly. So, it’s hard to share those kind of things when you don’t know it. (But I’m) happy about it, obviously, and as I always say, I’m looking for 500 more. It’s a lot of fun doing what I’m doing right here, and this group of guys right here — at times — certainly have a way to make you proud.”
