Here’s a look at the most recent theoretical playoff bracket supplied by the Boston Bruins organization. Several of the match-ups on each side look rather outstanding. A healthy Steven Stamkos will spell all sorts of trouble for the Montreal Canadiens. The Bruins would get the Detroit Red Wings, and Rangers/Flyers would be a great match up as well. As for the East, Colorado vs. Chicago. Enough said there. (Boston Bruins)

It’s the last ten games of the regular season and the Bruins are in strong position to not only win the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference, but the Black and Gold have a solid chance to win the President’s Trophy for having the best record in the NHL. For Claude Julien, he’s just worried about handling those last ten games one game at a time (CSNNE)

Just a healthy reminder to the Montreal Canadiens. This is hockey, not diving. I doubt you’ll get away this nonsense during the post-season. Then again, you might just have a meltdown and miss the playoffs. (Masshole Sports)

There’s no doubt now that the Toronto Maple Leafs are in total free fall. They’ve dropped their last six in regulation and have just played themselves out of a playoff spot. They’re in serious trouble and they are going to need to play some extremely desperate hockey if they intend to get that last playoff seed in the East.  (Yahoo Sports)

Shawn Thornton‘s Cuts For A Cause raised over one hundred and eighteen thousand dollars for children’s charities and the Shawn Thornton foundation this afternoon. For us fans, it was a rather amazing chance to rub elbows with our favorite players and help them raise money for kids battling cancer. (Causeway Crowd)

Finally, Steve Ott is thrilled to be free and clear of the Buffalo Sabres (one of the teams that Milan Lucic destroyed), and is ready for a playoff run with the St. Louis Blues (Buffalo Hockey Beat)
