Bruins to Name New Head Coach

Via Art Martone at the Providence Journal and Joe McDonald's Bruins blog on Projo.com here in RI... The Boston Bruins have called a news conference for 10:30 a.m. tomorrow to introduce their new coach. Scott Gordon, the coach of the Providence Bruins and one of the people mentioned in association with the search, will not be at the press conference. All indications are that Claude Julien, the former coach of the Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils, will get the job.

I also heard the B's were holding the press conference while watching the Red Sox on NESN tonight.

From what I heard earlier this week, Peter Chiarelli, the Bruins GM, really coveted Pat Quinn (someone they considered even before signing Dave Lewis last year). But I guess Pat Quinn knows a sinking ship when he sees one.
