In the penultimate game of the regular season the Boston Bruins face off against the Buffalo Sabres. I know you’re all very excited about this. At least tonight we get to find out who was voted the Seventh Player.
Bruce Cassidy is promising a full squad tonight with Linus Ullmark in net against his former team.
As for who will be the starting goaltender for the playoffs, Cassidy hasn’t made a determination, choosing to announce sometime after Friday night’s game at Toronto.
On Tuesday, Boston clinched the Wild Card 1 slot and will likely play Carolina in the first round; I say likely because there is a small chance that they could match up against Toronto. Cassidy said that the video team has been preparing for both. Carolina won the Metropolitan Division on Tuesday night after beating the Rags 4-3. The Canes have a slight goalie issue in that Frederik Andersen is week-to-week with an undisclosed injury leaving Antti Raanta as the de facto starter. Raanta was also out for a period of time in the last week with his own injury.
Anyway, the Bruins have 2 more games and a weekend off from playing before the playoffs start.
Tonights game will be on NESN at 7pm.
