Preview:

Today is the last day for the entire National Hockey League season! Except Boston and Ottawa! Today was supposed to be the end of season throwaway game against the Caps (remember that one a few years ago? I think Zach Hamill played or soemthing, and it was hilarious. There was another a few years ago where Mikko Lehtonen played, and Jeff Penner was in one as well.) Unfortunately, this game needs to be taken pretty seriously - playoff seeding is on the line, and Montreal could easily still catch the Bruins in the standings.

The baby Bruins lost to the baby Caps last night, so it'd be nice to see our parent club lay a beating on theirs today. Alex Ovechkin leads the Caps with 32 goals this year; their last game was a 2-1 OT loss to Ottawa.
