Ther­rien out, Julien in as Cana­di­ens bench boss

Metro Canada (Vancouver) - - SPORTS -

The Mon­treal Cana­di­ens fired head coach Michel Ther­rien on Tues­day and brought back for­mer Bos­ton Bru­ins bench boss Claude Julien to help put life back into their slump­ing team.

Julien be­came avail­able when he was fired in his 10th sea­son with the Bru­ins last week and Cana­di­ens gen­eral man­ager Marc Bergevin was quick to snap him up. It is be­lieved that a hand­ful of other teams were also in­ter­ested in the 56-year-old coach.
