Felger and Massarotti opened the day talking about the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals series and the one game suspension of Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom for his crosscheck on Rich Peverley.

What will the Backstrom suspension mean for the remainder of the series? How big of a break is this suspension for the Bruins?

With the way the rest of the Eastern Conference playoff games are being played out, is the door open for the Bruins to make the Conference finals?
