The Bruins literally can't improve or hurt their postseason standing one iota. The Penguins are fighting for first in the conference. Which, hopefully, means they'll leave the Philadelphia goon squad on the plane and come play hockey, because this game really is no time for Matt Cooke to go doing a no-no.
Also, if it's true that he's in, I'm looking forward to seeing Torey Krug play. So there's that, too.
