The Boston Bruins went into the last game of the regular season with a lot of the Bruins best players off the roster or put on the healthy scratch list. To compensate for this, the Bruins dug deep into the AHL talent pool and scooped up four players to play against Martin Brodeur (in what could be his final NHL game) and the New Jersey Devils. While the Bruins were unsatisfied with the 3-2 loss, this year’s President’s Trophy winners can now focus on the post season and their upcoming tilt with the Detroit Red Wings. (Boston Bruins)

Martin Brodeur finished on a strong personal note (even though the Devils were eliminated from the postseason). His team gave him his moment on the ice, and the fans celebrated the career of a man whose put up nearly seven hundred NHL wins. (New Jersey Devils)

While the Bruins finished out their regular season on a low note, they didn’t have the disastrous final note the Vancouver Canucks had. Daniel Sedin went down hard after being put in the boards by Calgary Flames’ Paul Byron. Sedin had to be taken to the hospital. (Puck Daddy)

Patrice Bergeron was able to get thirty goals this season for the Bruins. The team at Comcast takes a look at how the Bruins can achieve with their system. When Bergeron left the game, there was concern but it appears everything is fine for the patron saint of Causeway Street. (CSNNE)

It looks like Daniel Paille is OK after that hard (but clean) hit from Jake McCabe in their 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. He appears to be in good shape, and while they still need to go through all the concussion protocols, it’s likely we could see him at the first game of the playoffs. (Taunton Gazette)
