Bruins Daily: Is Montgomery Safe? DeBrusk Earned His Keep



Boston Bruins

With the Boston Bruins once again losing to the Florida Panthers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, will there be a price to pay for head coach Jim Montgomery?

Montgomery has now been beaten two straight times in the Stanley Cup Playoffs by a division rival, both times coming on home ice. One would think taking a cap-strapped, under-skilled team within two games of the Eastern Conference Final would mean Montgomery shouldn’t have to worry about job security. However, this is the Bruins, and this is the NHL, where 16 coaches have been fired since last June.

That and more in the latest BHN Bruins Daily:
