I never thought this would be the case but the Boston Bruins made the playoffs and will be playing the Ottawa Senators in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
It wasn’t to long ago that the Bruins were left for dead and was playing very inconsistent hockey. But it seemed that has all changed now with Julien being let go and King Bruce Cassidy stepping in and revamping and re-energizing the team.
Brad Marchand has really stepped up his game and has entered into the conversation of being an elite player and surpassing Bergeron as the best player on the team.
Their young blue line has looked really good and I don’t expect that to change even with Torey Krug questionable going in.
But congrats to King Don Sweeney for believing in this team and what he has constructed. He has a good looking young blue line with more help on the way and a good mix of forwards. Though he will need to find a way to bring Pastrnak back.
