Bruins’ Stretch-Run Requirements Include Holding Off Senators, Getting Healthy (Video)

The Bruins are set to kick off a difficult three-game West Coast swing, during which they'll need to grab as many points as possible to hold off the Senators down the stretch.

Regardless of whether the B's are able to come away with the Northeast Division crown, Boston will likely be punching its ticket to the playoffs. However, NESN's Barry Pederson thinks it's crucial that they finish on a high note with the division in hand.

The Bruins will also need to get healthy and show the same energy they played with on Monday night against the Maple Leafs before embarking on what they hope is another lengthy Stanley Cup run.

Check out the video above from NESN Daily to hear more of Pederson's stretch-run analysis, and to hear what Milan Lucic had to say when he went 1-on-1 with Naoko Funayama.
