Claude Julien, Don Sweeney To Speak Thursday At Bruins Press Conference

It has been four days since the Boston Bruins’ season ended with a blowout loss to the Ottawa Senators, and neither the media nor the general public have heard a peep from any of the team’s higher-ups.

That will change Thursday.

Bruins coach Claude Julien and general manager Don Sweeney will hold a joint news conference at 10 a.m. ET on Thursday at TD Garden, the team announced Wednesday. NESN will air Thursday’s press conference live, with NESN.com providing a live stream.

B’s president Cam Neely and CEO Charlie Jacobs also will address the media in a separate presser next Wednesday morning.

Only Boston players were made available to speak with reporters at Monday’s team breakup day, which came two days after the Bruins officially were eliminated from playoff contention for the second time in as many seasons.

The consecutive postseason no-shows have led many to question Julien’s job security. The 55-year-old coach has been behind the Bruins’ bench for the last nine seasons, leading the team to playoff berths in each of the first seven.

Boston lost nine of its last 12 games this season to finish with a record of 42-31-9.
