Bruins quick to remove coach Bruce Cassidy's interim tag

BOSTON (AP) Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney was quick to remove head coach Bruce Cassidy's interim tag, making the move days after the team lost its first-round playoff series.

"I think the way the team responded to his message, we had an aggressive bent to our game, we scored more goals, we didn't lose defensive structure in our foundation," Sweeney said Thursday, a day after announcing the move. "Our penalty killing remained to be tops in the league; our power play got better as the season went along. To me it spoke to the change that our team responded to ... and I felt very comfortable in moving forward that Bruce should do a great job."

The Bruins went 18-8-1 after Cassidy replaced Claude Julien on Feb. 7. Boston reached the playoffs for the first time since 2014 and every game in the series was decided by one goal, including four overtime games.
