Thursday Morning Skate: I Didn't Know It Was Over

USA TODAY Sports

On the original lockout schedule, the Bruins are resting today, with one away game left before the playoffs. Guessing Bergeron and Chara don't even make that trip. Instead, they've got 3 left. 2 home, 1 away. Plenty of time for your local radio blowhard to prophesize the Bruins' apparently imminent demise.

Speaking of that, there seems to be a lot of eulogizing of this season already. It's gotta stop. An 8th seed won it all last year. I don't have to remind y'all who won the year before. We've got all summer to examine what went wrong.

It's not even people here, necessarily. Thanks for letting me vent a little. Go Bs.
