Bruins Could Miss Playoffs?

Recommended Posts

Do you guys think theres any chance the Bruins could miss the playoffs??? They're 4-5-1 in their last 10, currently losing 5-0 to Tampa at the moment, and only 6 points ahead of 9th in the east. Turco started tonight and was pulled after giving 3 goals on 6 shots and thomas has given up 3 goals on 5 shots all tonight!

Bruins have 13 games left and currently stand at 83 points.

Buffalo's in 9th place with 74 points and 12 games remaining.

Say the Bruins go 0.500 from here on out - they would get 13 of 26 possible points (putting them at 96 points).

Buffalo would need 23 of 24 points to beat them out (97 points). Buffalo going 11-0-1? Impossible.

To miss the playoffs, the Bruins would have to play some really crappy hockey and Buffalo some amazing (near perfect) hockey. I just don't see that happening. Bruins aren't missing the playoffs - however, they may lose their division to Ottawa.

If you see any mathematical errors - please correct me!

We're struggling too right now so let's not get carried away. Having said that, when I heard the Bs trailed 0-4 after one it made me smile.

The Bruins will not miss the playoffs, mathematically possible but practically speaking it would require a near historic collapse, not going to happen.

They are already coasting to conserve energy for the playoffs, Canucks are doing the same.

No, I want them to make it and then suffer brutally in the playoffs. As slow and painful as possible please.
