At TD Garden, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli conducted his final exit interview with defenseman Andrew Ference. Chiarelli gave Ference the news the alternate captain had been expecting: The Bruins will not bring him back.
Jaromir Jagr is also out. The 41-year-old winger, who suffered back and hip injuries in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, will not return.
But Chiarelli had high praise for his team’s performance in the postseason.
“I was amazed, actually,” he said. “Not surprised, but amazed at our push in the playoffs. It was such a strong push. There were some peaks and valleys. But when we were rolling, it was impressive to watch.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
