PITTSBURGH - The Maple Leafs still hold a special place in Claude Julien’s heart.

In a backhanded sort of way, mind you.

Three weeks have passed since the Boston Bruins staged a stunning comeback in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal to eliminate the Leafs, but for the Bruins coach, the manner in which the Bruins disposed of Toronto resonates.

“The way we won Game 7, there’s no doubt in my mind there was a real big turning point,” Julien said on Monday. “It does play a big role."
