The Bruins seem to be rolling in the right direction, which is promising. Obviously Rich Peverley was way more important to this team than anyone ever imagined. Tomorrow night the team has a tough challenge in a struggling Capitals team vying for a playoff spot. Nicklas Backstrom could be in the lineup. It could get really real up in here.

After the jump, GIF party, the Maple Leafs aren't making the playoffs, and Andrew Ference is a brilliant man..
