The Boston Bruins travel to Washington where the Bruins can lock up the Atlantic Division Title and at least the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference by getting at least one point against the Capitals this afternoon. This can also occur with a Tampa Bay Lightning loss. The Bruins have been an an absolute tear as of late as they are 18-1-1 in their past 20 games. That only regulation loss coming to these Capitals back on March 1st. The Bruins are also currently riding a 14-game point streak (13-0-1). The Bruins also currently have an 8 game road winning streak dating back to January 11th and currently have a 17-game road point streak (14-0-3).
While the Bruins are all locked into the playoffs, the Capitals are fighting for one of the final two wild card spots and you know they will be playing exceptionally hard, striving to get those 2 points. For the Bruins, now the most important thing for them is to just stay healthy and perhaps giving some guys a bit of rest. The division is all but locked up and we're closing in on clinching the #1 seed too but we just need to stay healthy and sharp as we move into April.
Should be a fun one!
LET'S GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
