After three low-scoring games to open the Stanley Cup Finals, the Bruins and Blackhawks had an outburst of scoring in Game 4 with Chicago coming out on top 6-5.

While many of the Bruins players thought the pace of the game favored the Blackhawks, coach Claude Julien was more concerned with his team's play in the neutral zone. Julien noted that the Blackhawks had too much room to work with and too many options in transition, which helped them control the pace of the game. He added that when both teams are at their best, the pace of the game remains as exciting as it was on Wednesday night.

"I'm not going to sit here and complain about the high scoring," Julien said. "My point is on our game, the mistakes that we made, the decision making wasn't very good last night."
