The Boston Bruins have added another title to their 2013-14 resume’. In their afternoon game against the Washington Capitals, the Bruins played to their strengths and fashioned themselves a solid 4-2 win in DC. That win brought them up to one hundred and eight points, which was enough for them to clinch the Atlantic Division for the Black and Gold. Jarome Iginla earned two goals, bringing him to the thirty goal plateau for the twelfth time in his NHL career. (Boston Bruins)

The Washington Capitals have to move on after the loss, and do so quickly. They’re out of the playoff race for the moment, and they know they’ll have to double down and do everything they can to get themselves back in contention. Braden Holtby discussed the Caps and their situation with the media postgame. (Washington Capitals)

With the Capitals taken care of, the focus now shifts to another hungry team in the hunt, the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers have been coming on like gangbusters of late, and the Bruins know they’ll need to come out strong against them tomorrow. The Associated Press has a quick preview of tomorrow’s action.

A lot of Bruins fans were disappointed when Jarome Iginla went to the Pittsburgh Penguins last season, and a little reticent when he joined up with the Bruins this season. While he started out in a sort of scoring rut for the Black and Gold, he ignited in the second half of the season. He’s the team leader in goals, and just two points behind David Krejci for highest point total. He’s proven that he is every bit as good as advertised, and how he’s going to be a key component in another deep Bruins playoff run. (CSNNE)

Good news for former Boston Bruin forward Rich Peverley. He got the go ahead to begin working out again on the ice, and is very happy with the chance to be back out there. Not too shabby for a player who almost died on the bench about a month ago. (Pro Hockey Talk)
