08:20 AM ET 03.05 | A day after being accused of diving Sunday, the Canadiens didn't duck on Monday. Claude Julien may have had a few choice words for the Habs after Sunday night's game in Boston, but as far as the Canadiens are concerned, that just means they're doing their job. When asked about some of Julien's less-than-flattering comments on Monday afternoon, the Habs' head coach couldn't help but grin. "I've known Claude for a long time and I've been coaching teams against him for a long time too. To me, those comments that he made were ridiculous and I think he was very frustrated to have lost that game. Claude can concentrate on his team and I'll concentrate on my own," offered Michel Therrien following [Monday's morning] skate.

The Habs have some frenchies in their line-up?

I found this yesterday. It made me chuckle. Wish I could post it but I am not Canuck. Anyway. When he complains next time someone should just put this up while he is whining.

Let's get Claude & Michelle in the octagon. Two coaches enter, one coach leaves.

My $$ is on Claude.

He looks more rough and tumble.
