Sabres, Sens strike a balance

‘Bryan Murray and Ruff had one of the all-time arguments following the 12-man brawl earlier this season, but they actually have deep respect for each other. Murray was one of Ruff’s coaching mentors when both were with Florida. Murray became the fifth coach in NHL history to win 600 games, but this is the first time in his career that he has coached past the second round. He has a 47-51 career playoff record. One reason the Sens made it this far, however, is because Murray altered their style and made his players more responsible in their own end.’
