The Bruins aren't playing tonight, but there four important games for them tonight. All of them are at 7. Rangers @ Sabres, Canadiens @ Islanders, Flyers @ Maple Leafs, Devils @ Thrashers.
In theory, the Bruins could still be in 7th and in a great position to make the playoffs. They'd only need 3 points to clinch a postseason berth. But that's only if the Rangers lose in regulation.
Also in theory, the Bruins could fall to 8th, and have only a 1 point cushion over those same Rangers.
The Rangers also play Wednesday night, so it's possible that the Bruins could fall to 9th before they play again on Thursday night. But they'd also have a game in hand.
So, yeah, this will be a stressful week for the Bruins and their fans.
