At this point, I think Bruins fans should just be happy that they are making the playoffs. In hockey, anything can happen, but [I agree] we shouldn't exactly be jumping for joy at a Caps match-up.

Yep, an OTT match up would give us a chance.

Against WAS? Nope.

BUT WAIT, Blue Jackets take the lead. 3-2!! Please hold on!!!

10 minutes away from a date with Ottawa First Round.

Please don't blow this Columbus.

Rather take my chances against Ottawa than against the cream of the conference (Washington)

UPDATE: Columbus Win! Bruins play Ottawa first round! Not Washington!

I guess I know less about the NHL playoffs than I realized—how is it that the No. 7 Bruins get the No. 6 Sens in the first round?

Yeah, it is a little confusing. It is still split between EC and WC, but basically if you are one of the top 3 teams in your division, you stay in your division's part of the bracket (either Metro or Atlantic in the EC). There are also 2 wildcard teams, which can come from the same division or one from each of the two divisions and each of those teams play the #1 team in the Metro/Atlantic.

If Toronto had won, that would have knocked the Bruins down to wildcard status, meaning they would have had to play the #1 team in Washington. That luxury now belongs to Toronto as 4th in the Atlantic. The Bruins at #3 now stay in the [much worse] Atlantic part of the bracket. Even though Ottawa is technically #6 in the EC, they are actually #2 in the Atlantic. The poor Rangers who are better than both Boston and Ottawa are actually a wildcard team because of their division.

Yeah, and it also means a Pittsburgh-Columbus first round match up, which seems pretty absurd considering they are two of the top teams in the conference.

This system has quite a few flaws in it, and I also don't blame anyone for getting confused over it (it's confused me many times too LOL).

Thanks.

Wish we could give the Bs one for OT.

Maybe they could call it a Bobby point?

Too bad they lost thanks to the refs boneheaded penalty call late.

They were so close to having a 2-0 series lead, or 3-0, or even 2-1. Total bummer that they're down 1-2 and gave back home ice. Here's to hoping for a 2-2 series after the next game!
