The Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin announced some really sad news on Thursday.
Bergevin announced that head coach Claude Julien has been hospitalized with chest pain.
Julien has left the bubble and Bergevin said the head coach won't be able to rejoin the team in the bubble before the end of series.
Kirk Muller will take over as head coach in the meantime.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Julien and his family during these scary times.
