Bruins downplay fan's 'Toronto Stronger' sign

TORONTO -- Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien has played down a "Toronto Stronger" sign carried by a Maple Leafs fan before Game 3 of their NHL playoff series.
Julien suggested it was the misguided product of a playoff-driven supporter.
The sign was seen by many as an insensitive play off the "Boston Strong" slogan the Bruins' hometown adopted in the wake of the recent marathon bombings.
"Last night's sign, to me, had nothing to do with hockey," Julien said Tuesday. " 'Boston Strong' is about something that struck our city, not our team. Maybe it's a little sensitive for the Boston people.
"Those kind of things happen in the playoffs, and the best and sometimes the worst comes out of the passion of our game. That's all I can say about that situation. It's maybe a little sensitive for the city of Boston more than it is for our hockey club."
