What a precarious spot to be in.
The Bruins didn't suffer greatly points-wise against the Rangers last night, though the loss and the early pulling of Rask made the 5-2 pummeling all the more agonizing to watch. Thankfully, they get a chance to reverse their fortunes against the East's confusing team: The Florida Panthers.
The Panthers' record is seemingly non-indicative of how they play, and yet entirely deserved. Whatever the plan in Sunrise was going into this season, it seems to have worked out for the better, having the least amount of losses in the entire division. There is one team however that always seems to have their goat. One team that keeps making this bright young group look like fools. One team that just puts any wind they might have in their sales right out.
That team is the Boston Bruins, who have a chance to sweep the season series entirely tonight.
Can they do it? At this point, it's anyone's game. Tune in and find out!
