Yep...another impressive two points against a team fighting for their lives. This is a good test for the playoffs...playing teams who are in "must-win" situations.
Now that the division is (officially) locked up Boston's focus should be on getting through the rest of the regular slate without any major injuries.
They shouldn't really care for the President's Trophy or the top seed...just play their game, stay healthy, and let the chips fall where they may.

Chad Johnson has been on a roll winning his 6th straight, improving his season record to 17-3-1 with a 2.04 GAA in his backup role.
Iggy net's two more goals and reaches 30 goals for the 12th time in his career. I don't think anyone could have predicted just how important an addition he has been to this team. hat's off to the Bruins organization in getting the deal done and FINALLY bringing him to Boston!
Patrice Bergeron and Carl Soderberg both continue their hot scoring streaks for the Eastern Conferences best offensive team.
Time to start resting some of the veterans for what hopefully will be a long run in this years Stanley Cup playoffs.
GO B'S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
