There is no better way to end the regular season at home. There is also no better way to end the regular season with a win. The Bruins knocked off the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 in a shootout.
Tyler Seguin scored two goals while Brad Marchand recorded one goal. Patrice Bergeron racked up three assists. Tim Thomas was back in net for the B's, stopping 25 shots.
The Sabres scored three consecutive goals at one point in this game. However, they were only able to grab one power play opportunity, which is where the game was won. Boston went one-for-four with the man advantage. In a meaningless game, the Bruins were well disciplined.
The Bruins finished second in the Eastern Conference as the Northeast Division champions. They accumulated 102 points by posting a 49-29-4 record during this season. Their first round opponent is still unknown, but an article will by posted via Inside Hockey discussing the regular season, gold and black stars, and a preview of their first round match-up. Bring on the playoffs.
Gold Star: Tyler Seguin (2 goals, plus-2 rating, 5 shots on goal)...The kid will shine in the playoffs. Good thing he will actually play in the opening round this year.
Black Star: Joe Corvo...It will be shocking if this game was not his last game as a Bruin.
