Team News

Boston Bruins’ spot at the top of the Eastern Conference standings hasn’t been in question throughout much of the season. But, the hard work really begins after this Thursday’s showdown with the Canadiens. The Bruins come into this game in red-hot form, as they have won their previous seven games.

Meanwhile, they have claimed victories in nine of their last ten games. Boston has already secured their spot at the top of the standings, and that should make for a straightforward passage through the playoffs. This could be a perfect end-of-season game, as they have gone 30-8-2 on the road this term.

There will be no fairytale run to the playoffs this season for the Canadiens, as they are set to end the regular season in 15th. Their record this term reads 31-44-6, and they have landed just three victories over their last ten games in the NHL. They also come into this game after losing each of their previous two.

However, they have been slightly better at home this term than they have been on the road. That is evident from the fact that they have landed three more wins, and four fewer regulation defeats at Centre Bell than they have on the road.


It has been a tough season for the Canadiens, and things don’t get much easier in this final game. We expect the Bruins to once again showcase their playoff credentials with a straightforward success on the road in Montreal.
