Good news and Bad

Really, who, less than a month ago would have, could have possibly thought that the Bruins would be where they are today, just 1 win away from a trip to the NHL’s Final 4.

A month ago the Bruins were life and death for the 8th and final playoff spot and now they are a win away from NHL’s Eastern Conference Finals, a series away from the Stanley Cup Finals. From the outhouse to the penthouse. So how did they do it?

No superstars but just a bunch of players making clutch contributions including David Krejci. Here is where the bad news rears it’s ugly head, again. Just one game after losing leading goal scorer Marco Sturm to a torn ACL and MCL, Krejci exists the playoffs with a broken wrist.

Now the Bruins did just get Marc Savard back from his grade 2 concussion and tough guy Mark Stuart and is infected finger which caused an unusual bone infection are very very close to  returning. Expect him back for the Pittsburgh Series (Yes, unfortunately,I expect the Penguins to take care of business against the Canadiens but hopefully Montreal can wear then out a little).

So can the Bruins continue to get late clutch goals from unexpected sources to continue this unexpected ride? Why not?  Most all of New England will now be staying tuned.
