When the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics reach the postseason, a message from the Boston Red Sox wishing those squads good luck can be seen behind home plate at Fenway Park.
Apparently, that feeling is mutual.
Bruins head coach Claude Julien told reporters he keeps up with the Red Sox and talks to Red Sox manager John Farrell.
“[Farrell’s] done a great job,” Bruins Julien told Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston. “He’s changed the whole chemistry of that team. We talk about good chemistry, and you can tell there’s good chemistry right now and I don’t think you saw that same chemistry last year and that’s made a big difference. His players want to play. They want to put themselves out there, and when players want to do that it’s because something has changed in that room that makes them excited to go out there and play hard. John deserves a lot of credit for that.”
The Red Sox will host the winner of game five between the Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers Saturday while the Bruins will next be in action when they host the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.
