Report of ex-B’s coach Pat Burns’ death inaccurate

UPDATE: Numerous outlets reported late Friday morning that former Bruins coach Pat Burns died at the age of 58 after a battle with lung cancer. CTV in Ottawa, which had the original report, has since retracted it, indicating: “We had erroneous information on Pat Burns. We have nothing to report about his medical condition at this time.”

Burns coached the Bruins for three seasons from 1997-2000 and for eight games of the 2001 season, making the playoffs twice in that span. He returned to the bench with the Devils and won the 2003 Stanley Cup [1].
