Boston Bruins players were taking the blame for their failure of a season on Monday, and hope to get another shot with the same core next year.
Here are three positive and three negative takeaways from the season.
Playing on a line with rookies David Pastrnak and Ryan Spooner has cut down forward Milan Lucic’s opportunities to play in crunch time down the stretch of the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
So, the Boston Bruins are still alive. And surprisingly enough, they’re sitting somewhat pretty.
Milan Lucic scored two first period goals and the Bruins earned a 4-2 win Saturday at TD Garden.
In an odd twist, it appears the Bruins might’ve filled their right-wing need with Krejci.
Unlike “The Office” without Steve Carrell, the Stanley Cup Playoffs will go on and remain entertaining even if the Bruins are absent.
Milan Lucic has made it tough on Boston by not meeting expectations.
The Bruins can’t afford to keep playing at an “8” when Julien needs them at a “10.”
Rick Nash of the New York Rangers scored his league leading 32nd goal of the season to beat the Bruins at Madison Square Garden 3-2.
