BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins certainly aren't worried about the return of Thomas Vanek.
Coach Claude Julien held his news conference prior to the announcement that the Sabres were getting their top scorer back, and he made it clear he didn't care either way if Vanek was dressing for Game Six. After all, Vanek is no Alexander Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby, it seems.
"I don't need to start spending too much time worrying about one guy, not even knowing if he's in the lineup," Julien said. "We have a team concept. We play a team game. When there's players in or out, there's small adjustments. We've had to play against the Ovechkins and Crosbys before. We've always adjusted well enough. I don't think Vanek is going to be a guy that is really going to throw us off our game."
The coach also isn't concerned if the Sabres bring forth the determined effort they showed in Game Five.
"They can bring whatever they want," Julien said. "It's what we need to bring that's where my focus is. It's not what they're going to bring, it's what we're going to bring."
