The Bruins have clinched home ice in the first round of the playoffs

The last two games of the regular season will happily mean nothing for the Bruins: they’ve clinched home ice in the first round of the playoffs!

The Bruins’ win over Columbus combined with the Leafs’ loss to Carolina to end the little drama that was left in the race for second place.

The B’s were 2-0 against Toronto at the Garden this season, beating them by a combined score of 11-4. NOT BAD.

Their last loss to Toronto at home came in Game 5 of last year’s first-round series.

This is speculation on my part, but with the playoffs kicking off a week from tomorrow, my bet would be the Bruins end up playing Thursday and Saturday. We’ll see!

Now...time to rest some guys, especially Brandon Carlo. Someone please bubble wrap Brandon Carlo.
