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.”
