It took a little more than three months, but the NHL wrapped up its regular-season schedule Sunday night with the Bruins and Senators playing Game No. 48 on their respective schedules. As that game ended, so too did the league’s jam-packed abbreviated schedule that came on the heels of yet another lockout.
It’s hard to fathom that just three months ago the Bruins and Rangers were dropping the puck to start the season on the very same sheet of ice. The B’s, like every other team in the truncated schedule, went through their ups and downs. Like every other team, the Bruins felt the impact of playing just about every other night in a furious dash to the end of the regular season.
The shortened season left no shortage of memorable moments and exciting games, though. The B’s ripped through the season with plenty of gripping storylines all the way up until the final day of the season, where they battled (and ultimately fell short) for the Northeast Division title.
As the Bruins (and their fans) catch their collective breath before the playoffs begin, let’s take a look back at the top 10 B’s games from this past season.
