Remember two days ago when the Boston Bruins didn’t want to “rely on the last game” to make the playoffs?
Well, after consecutive losses to Washington and Florida, that’s what they’ll have to do. And even if they beat the Lightning tomorrow, it may not be enough. Either the Ottawa Senators or Pittsburgh Penguins would have to slip up too.
