Both the Bruins and Celtics showed some guts over the weekend and the Celtics are still alive and the Bruins are dead. Losing in the playoffs especially in the first round is the same as not even making the playoffs as far as I’m concerned.
Got to give Tukka Rask credit as he won the game on Friday night and even though you can’t fault him for everything in the losing games, there were four overtime games and the Bruins lost three of them.
If I can rationalize a bit it does save the Bruins from losing to the Rangers which I think they would’ve in the Conference semi’s. As far as the Rangers vs. Ottawa is concerned if I’m a Ranger fan I rather face the Bruins.
