It's February and Bryan Murray is still the coach of the Boston Bruins. There were many who pegged him as a goner as management expressed some frustration with the teams lack of constency in late January but with a much better effort as of late, Bruins management announced that they had come to terms with him, signing him to a contract through next season. "Really we couldn't see anyone but Bryan leading this team into the playoffs and next season, we have the upmost conifdence that the team will finish the season alot stronger than they would without him"
The Bruins host division rivals the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight, then finish off the month against the suprising Islanders and the sinking Penguins. The trade deadline is March 1st and the Bruins don't anticipate any big moves, at least nothing as big as anything the've already done. Newly aquired Maxime Talbot and Karlis Skrastins make their Bruin debuts tonight, Max centering a line with Alexandre Picard and Chad Larose, Karlis pairing with Matt Smaby. "Both will see considerable time on the PK, thats why we brought them in".
Game Notes - Curtis Glencross has been moved down to the fourth line and has told Murray that he would like to be traded, stay tuned for potenital destinations.
