No need to panic. The team has been playing quite well, and Nash has fit in very well.

Sucks that the injury to Bergeron might cost him MVP.
Bergeron had zero chance to win the MVP regardless. There has never been an MVP winner in recent history that has ranked so low in points. Kucherov is getting this one, and it's not going to be close.

Sloppy defensive game tonight, but Marchand made sure they got two points. Hat trick.

Brad Marchand lives for OT.  Clutch.

That makes 5 overtime winners this season, which is awesome. Great to Bergeron back as well and getting a couple of assists, and great to see Pasternak reach 30 goals.

The game before against the Stars where Pastrnak scored the game winner with just 11 seconds left was pretty awesome too. This team loves coming back in third periods and put up 3 unanswered goals in the 3rd that night to win 3-2.

They simply are the best team in hockey

I love the line of Marchand-Bergeron-Pasternak, which may be the best in the NHL.

The Bruins can take over first in the East tonight.  They're up 2-0 on the first place Lightning heading into the 2nd period.

I don't watch hockey and all but I hear they were doing a choke job and are now going to face the Maple Leafs in the playoffs? And everyone is fearful of the Leafs.  ???

But go Bruins!!  ;D

The Bruins did struggle a little bit down the home stretch, but still ended up a strong No. 2 seed. And though the Leafs won the season series 3-1, the Bruins should beat them in a playoff series.

Eh. The Bs played spectacular hockey to catch Tampa in the last week, before falling back to the second seed. They lost to a decent Florida team; it was a rough game, but I wouldn’t call it a choke job.

I’m quite proud of the way they’ve played despite being decimated by injuries.

Yeah, it sucks that they lost last night since I really, really wanted them to play an "easier" Devils team than Maple Leafs in the 1st round.

That said, they've been dealing with injuries for a bit and the schedule overall has been rough for them the past 3 or so weeks.

And I'm at least encouraged they played exceptionally in the 3rd period. Of course, I'm upset they couldn't replicate that earlier in the game, but at least it shows they are capable of turning it on still. Unfortunately they just blew so many close chances in the 3rd (like Pastrnak's tip being just an inch away from the net and Krejci also missing a deflection on net). If one of those bounces our way it could have been a different outcome. Oh well.

I still think we beat TOR in 6 games but we'll have to play better than we have recently. Should be a physical series so I also hope we can stay relatively healthy throughout.

I'm also glad that Game 2 is on NBC, since my TV package is basic and doesn't carry NESN and NBCSN lol (so I could watch on TV instead of having to watch online streams).
