The pressure is mounting on the Boston Bruins, and it's hardly exclusive to the players.

The front office could reportedly see a complete overhaul should the team fail to hang on to their postseason position.

Per Darren Dreger on NBC's first intermission broadcast:

If the Bruins don't qualify for the postseason, then absolutely you could see full front office change in the offseason. We're talking about the dismissal of Peter Chiarelli or the head coach, Claude Julien. Both these guys know the amount of pressure that they're feeling right now. They know it because they're living it.

Dreger adds that the Bruins are desperately working the phones in an effort to hold off the hard-charging Philadelphia Flyers, who now sit seven points back, and more importantly, the Florida Panthers, who are three points behind.
