It's a new season, which means it's time to make predictions. NESN's Dale Arnold, Gord Kluzak and Barry Pederson made theirs on Bruins Face-Off Live prior to Saturday's Bruins-Lightning game.
While none will question the talent and heart that the Bruins possess, Kluzak and Pederson know how difficult it is to repeat as Stanley Cup champions. Therefore, they went in a different direction with their Cup picks, going with the Capitals and Sharks, respectively.
Dale Arnold, on the other hand, isn't counting out the Black and Gold. He thinks the B's will prevail over the Sharks in this season's Cup final.
