Clinching scenarios: Bruins can secure first berth
Friday's clinching scenario: Bruins can become the first team to clinch playoff berth if they defeat Avs OR get one point vs. Avs AND Rangers lose in regulation to Jackets.

The Boston Bruins would become the first team to clinch a berth in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs if they defeat the Colorado Avalanche in any fashion OR if they get one point against the Avalanche AND the New York Rangers lose in regulation to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
