I would leave them for now and prune them in the early spring (pruning is best done in either late fall or early spring). This will result in a bushy and full plant in the summer with lots of blooms. In the future, you may want to consider letting your brug go dormant in the winter. They just don't look all that nice indoors as they really try to go into dormancy, so it easier just to allow them to do that. Here is information on doing that:
