The Boston Bruins are approaching the final stage of the 2013-14 season.  Just because they’re locked into the playoffs and have a nearly insurmountable lead over the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning, doesn’t mean the team can lighten up. They’ve got nine games to go, and they know they’ve still got a rough sprint ahead of them. (Boston Bruins)

The Washington Capitals will be seeing the Bruins tomorrow afternoon, and they will certainly be taking the Boston Bruins seriously. The Capitals beat the Bruins the last time out 4-2, and they’ll want to try to repeat that performance. They’re on the outside looking in and they are desperate to get any points possible. (Washington Capitals)

Once again, it looks like a two man race for the Selke Award this year, and the names have a familiar ring to them. The Chicago Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews and the Boston Bruins’ Patrice Bergeron look like the strongest two front runners. This time around though, it looks like that Bergeron has an edge on Toews and everyone else and should win back to back Selke Awards. (CSNNE)

While Tuukka Rask and Chad Johnson are having great seasons in Boston, Martin Brodeur is having his swan song year playing for the New Jersey Devils. He just accomplished a goal that practically every other goalie in the NHL would not want to have. Brodeur just became the goalie with the most amount of goals scored against him in NHL history. Brodeur is guarenteed selection in the Hall of Fame for all his other accomplishments, I’m sure he just didn’t want that one added to the list. (The Hockey News)

The Bruins are completely secure in their standings, but the Toronto Maple Leafs (like the Washington Capitals) are on the verge of falling out of the playoff hunt. They lost another one tonight to the Philadelphia Flyers, and it seems there will be some big changes coming for that team come April. (NHL)
