The Boston Bruins have a chance to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference on Saturday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers, and with it could come some much-needed rest.

Watch Dale Arnold, Billy Jaffe and Barry Pederson discuss the many perks of clinching in the video above from NESN’s “Big Bad Bruins Live.”
