The Bruins needed two points to clinch a spot in the playoffs on Thursday night. They only managed one.
It was a dramatic way to earn a point, for sure, but it was nonetheless only one point. No matter how great it was that Andrew Ference tied the game with little time remaining, the ultimate victory went to the desperate Capitals.
Still, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Ference our “Moot Point” award for making it interesting, at least. Who’s your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts on the game in the comments.
