Tonight the Bruins take on the Fancy Cats for a final time this regular season. The Fancy Cats have had an impressive season from the start. Even after losing their head coach Joel Quenneville due to his role in the Blackhawks sexual assault coverup, the Panthers have continued to dominate the Atlantic under the guidance of interim head coach Andrew Brunette. At this point, the Panthers are almost assured the Presidents Trophy with their 120 points. Of course, the whole Eastern Conference is jam packed with 100 point teams in these playoffs.

Tonights game doesn’t really mean much in the grand scheme. Florida has home ice through the playoffs and will remain the number one seed in the East regardless on winning or losing tonight. The Bruins are in a similar situation in that they are going to remain in Wild Card 1 unless Tampa Bay has difficulties with their home-and-home with Columbus. So, if the bruins at full strength can beat the Panthers, good for them.
Tonights game is at 7pm on NESN.
Playoffs are coming and that means that we have NHL Bracket Challenges. I created a couple of leagues.
Join them both! You’ll have until game time on Monday, May 2nd to create a bracket.
