BOSTON -- Jeremy Jacobs isnt one to interfere with the everydayactions of his hockey team, and the Bruins players and coaches both understandand respect that.
So when the teams owner came down to talk with the playersbefore Sundays optional skate at the TD Garden, it sent quite the message,according to coach Claude Julien.
I think it meant a lot, said Julien. I was happy that hedid take the time to speak to our team. We dont see him much during theseason. He comes and watches games, but hes certainly not one of those ownersthat will interfere and come down much.
Thats his personality and thats his style. We respectthat, but when he does come in like he did today and address the team, I thinkeverybody was happy to hear from him. Hes a person that obviously speaks hismind. He told us that he was very proud of our group. For a person that we donthear much from, I think it was a great message today for our players. And Iknow that our guys walked out, and were really happy to see him and hear fromhim.
