Bruins’ Potential First Round Opponents Present Tough Matchups in Goal

Even with just two games remaining in the regular season, the Bruins are still unsure of which team they'll be facing off against in the first round of the playoffs.

There are four potential opponents that the Bruins could face in the first round, and they all have tough goaltenders that would present a difficult matchup for a seven-game set. Bruins analyst Bob Beers stopped in to NESN Daily on Thursday to discuss the postseason, and though all the first-round opponents would be difficult, the former Bruin said the Rangers are one of the toughest matchups of the bunch.

"[Henrik] Lundqvist is really good," Beers said. "The Bruins have seen it every time they've had to face this guy. They've never scored more than three goals against him, he competes hard, he put the Rangers on his back here recently … he scares me quite a bit."

Beers went on to say that the Canadiens might not be such a daunting first-round opponent if the Bruins are able to harness the passion and intensity that goes into the historic matchup.
