Although they hold games in hand on many teams ahead of them and behind them in the Eastern Conference standings, the Bruins are now eighth in the conference standings.

Buffalo and Carolina are both six points back of Boston for that coveted last playoff spot. Most wouldn’t be surprised if today’s top eight East teams were still in their current positions, or thereabouts, when the season ends in April.

On the day the Bruins have a huge Northeast Division tilt with first-place Montreal, I ask you:
