|Notes and Observations, Week 3: Offense Struggles, Patriots Top Raiders 16-9||If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24||Connelly’s Top Ten: Average Patriots Make Sunday Boring||Week 3 Preview: Raiders at Patriots, Sept. 21, 2014|
The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins are back in the playoffs with a chance to defend their crown.
Even though the Bruins were off on Friday night, the team clinched a playoff spot for the fifth straight season after the Buffalo Sabres lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-3.
The B’s are six points up on the Ottawa Senators in the division with five games left to play, and they are four points ahead of the Florida Panthers (who are third in the conference).
Thus, the most likely scenario is that the Bruins finish as the No. 2 seed. In that case, they would likely play the Senators (No. 7 seed) in the first round.
How do you like their chances going forward?
