Well, I was scoreboard watching tonight, and while the Bruins have a long road ahead of them, they picked up two HUGE points on everybody who matters to them in the East tonight with a big 3rd period comeback and shootout win against the Caps.
Add that to both the Devils and Senators doing their part to vanquish the Canes and Isles in regulation and that adds up to the Black and Gold elevating their status from "totally fucked" to a respectable "pretty much still fucked."
You know what that is?
Also, with their next four games against the Rangers and Habs, who are both solidly on the bubble, it's looking like they have their destiny in their own hands, at least for the next two weeks.
I'll close with this- if you're a Bruins, Rangers, Leafs, Canes, Isles, or Habs fan and you need another good reason to hate Gary Bettman and his unbalanced schedule this year, well- answer this question:
Wouldn't it be nice to play the Edmonton Oilers right about now?
