The Bruins, meanwhile, secured their second Northeast Division title in three seasons with Saturday's victory over visiting Atlanta. As a result of the division title,
Boston, which is trailing Washington and Philadelphia by four points
for the East lead, is guaranteed no worse than the third seed in the conference playoffs.
New York has taken two of three from the Bruins this season and the Rangers dealt their Original Six rivals a 1-0 setback when the clubs met in Boston on March 26. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 shots to post the shutout in that recent encounter.
The Rangers have won five of seven and six of nine overall in this series and Boston has dropped nine of its last 11 tests in the Big Apple.
Perhaps Boston takes the night off considering they wrapped up the 3rd seed and have basically no chance at moving up beyond that?
Edit: Crap...Boston has 4 games remaining. They could very well still move up and take the #1 or #2 overall seed.
