Welcome to Crossing The Atlantic, our weekly Atlantic Division round up. We’ve enlisted the help of writers who cover their teams on a daily basis from across the FanSided network. In the order of the Atlantic Division standings, here’s this week’s edition. Enjoy!
The Boston Bruins let the game get away from them last night. In their defense, it was one of the more unusual configurations the Bruins have played this season. The only way it could have gotten weirder for Boston would have been to put the pads on Zdeno Chara and have him stand in the crease.
The Bruins have nothing to gain in winning the Presidents’ Trophy. It’s just a piece of hardware that looks really nice behind a glass case. It meant nothing to us when Vancouver Canucks fans touted it, and it should remain nothing more than a footnote for the Bruins now. They need to focus on giving Chara, Patrice Bergeron and Jarome Iginla rest, and letting the Providence kids have a game in the sunshine.
That being said, the Bruins should look forward to playing the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round.
