Capitals beat Bruins 3-1 in possible playoff preview

Capitals beat Bruins 3-1 in possible playoff preview

One game remains for Boston in what has been a choppy-if not drama filled-regular season. However, if he signs an entry-level contract and plays, he will burn a year of eligibility on his contract and it's unlikely the Bruins will take that chance and allow the former first-round pick (No. 14 overall) out of Boston University to reach free agency early. Said Marchand: "It was definitely selfish and undisciplined at the time".

"Charlie's a guy up to this point that has had no problem in the limelight, the big games".

Boston killed the 5-minute penalty and gained momentum from it. In the third period, Zdeno Chara's power play goal and Pastrnak's second lamplighter of the contest along with another stellar goaltending effort by Tuukka Rask made sure of that. Ryan, Stone and Brassard are expected to score but often in the playoffs its guys like Pageau, Dzingel and Pyatt, who play the role of hero. We'll post the schedule when we get it.

Yes, the Senators have done a good job in Boucher's system, frustrating other teams defensively, but they've got to find a way to put the puck in the net consistently. Kyle Turris beat Tuukka Rask with the only shootout goal as the injury-ravaged Senators beat the Bruins for the fourth time in as many tries this season and sixth in a row dating back to a year ago. The Sens ranked 23rd with a 48.44 percent mark, the worst of any playoff team.

"I just thought we were real professional today with our approach".

The Bruins certainly have the talent to make a run in the 2017 playoffs. So if you're not getting through the neutral zone effectively, then a lot of times the puck's coming right back at you. It's exciting for players, exciting for fans. But based on their play this season, particularly from February on when Bruce Cassidy took over behind the bench, the Bruins deserve to be among the top 16 teams competing for Lord Stanley's chalice. Especially the last few months. "But we've had games without Erik". Dorion did say if the playoffs were to start tomorrow Karlsson would be playing, as would forward Zack Smith, who suffered an upper body injury March 30.

"I feel like this city deserves playoff hockey".

"It's very gratifying", Bergeron said when about his team dispelling the doubt that surrounded the club outside of their dressing room walls. "I think this team's been through obviously some up and downs throughout the whole season and that we showed that we created some identity and built some resiliency".

The Oilers moved two points ahead of the Sharks in the Pacific Division and can clinch home ice in the first round by earning one point in their final two games against Vancouver. If Ottawa ends the season in a three-way tie with Boston and Toronto, the Senators fall to the bottom and face the league-leading Caps. If they get three points out of their last two games, they would pass Boston and finish third in the Atlantic. Boston defenseman Torey Krug was out of service after just three shifts after colliding leg-first into the boards.
