There is no indication of a coaching change for the Habs

According to Renaud Lavoie and TVA Sports, all indications point to Michel Therrien returning behind the bench of the Montreal Canadiens next season.

In the report, Lavoie says that no one in the organization expects there to be a coaching change next year, one day after Marc Bergevin said he will evaluate things at the end of the year. This report indicates those changes will be likely more on the personnel side than on the coaching side.

There have been rumours of a coaching change since the team's epic collapse in December, but Bergevin was emphatic in his support of the Canadiens coach, who is in his second stint with the team.

Therrien is 157-95-29 and has two division titles since 2012.

The Canadiens face off against the Florida Panthers tonight at the Bell Centre.
