Bruins can't follow NHL's best regular-season record with another trip to Stanley Cup finals

BOSTON - For the first time in a while the Boston Bruins will have to think about whether major changes are needed in the off-season.

Despite a regular season in which they led the NHL with 117 points, the defending Eastern Conference champions have been eliminated from the playoffs in the second round. The Montreal Canadiens beat the Bruins 3-1 in Game 7 in Boston on Wednesday night to advance to the conference finals.

Now the Bruins have to figure out if major moves are necessary to make another run at the Stanley Cup. That's after a run of two trips to the Stanley Cup finals in three years.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
