The recently-unstoppable Wings stay home Sunday to welcome the Bruins into the last week of the regular season. Boston is 5-5-0 in their last ten but have known they’d be hosting Toronto in the first round since... hell I don’t know. A while now.
The B’s are led in points by Brad Marchand, who is probably going to hit 100 points by the end of the season and could even do so tonight. They’ve also got a couple guys (including Marchand) flirting with 40 goals on the season. Patrice Bergeron remains really good at hockey and David Pastrnak’s ugly mug rounds out the top-tier threats among Boston’s forwards.
On the back end, the B’s remain tough with Zdeno Chara as the leader but Torey Krug sitting on 51 points.
But they haven’t seen the Bertuzz-Larkin-Mantha line or Taro Hirose, so they have no idea what they’re in store for.
