Make no mistake about it. The Boston Bruins are fighting for their playoff lives.
The B’s have a lot at stake in Thursday’s game against the Florida Panthers at BB&T Center. Boston enters the contest hanging onto the final Wild Card spot in the NHL’s Eastern Conference with two games remaining, but is tied with the Ottawa Senators and could lose that spot with a loss.
No pressure, right?
Those high stakes might affect some Bruins players, so before Thursday night’s showdown, NESN’s Andy Brickley dished out some friendly advice: Enjoy it.
“Embrace the moment,” Brickley said. “This is why you play. It’s such a great opportunity for the Boston Bruins to have this chance to earn their way into the postseason. That’s all you can ask for, now go out and grab it.”
