Vigneault calls out Julien, twitter reactions to unpenalized hit and more
Alain Vigneault called out Boston Bruin’s coach Claude Julien for saying Henrik Lundqvist acted on the hit by Marchand to his head. AV stated that Julien “get an eye exam” and doubled down with, “who would you rather have as a son?”.

Of course, the world would be boring if it was one-sided (or fair), but check out these awesome twitter reactions. Let’s begin with a talented writer for NESN, who initially tweeted that AV should win something before criticizing Julien, to which he deleted after I challenged him.
Then he followed it up with this gem.
Vigneault clearly still upset about being outplayed and outcoached by the Bruins and Julien in the ’11 Stanley Cup Final.

Come on Nick! No need to go full homer here. Then Joe Haggerty put out this gem which I had to challenge (no response).
He then posted his article on Beleskey not facing any discipline and the first reaction one Boston fan was to fine Hank? Priceless.

From the NYR side, this was a good one.
AV calls Julien’s comments on Lundqvist “disrespectful,” asks, “who would you rather have as a son, Henrik…or Brad Marchand?”

The son line was pretty good…here’s a classic reaction to end it all.
“Who would you rather have as a son?” is the new “Is a hot dog a sandwich?” — Joe Yerdon (@JoeYerdon) November 28, 2015
