BOSTON (AP) -Claude Julien was hired as coach of the Bruins on Thursday, less than a week after Boston fired Dave Lewis and two months after Julien was dismissed by the New Jersey Devils in the season's waning days.
Julien is the 17th person to coach the Bruins in 30 years. One of them, Harry Sinden, held the job twice.
Julien was let go by the first-place Devils in April with three games left in the regular season and the team preparing for the playoffs.
