Having watched the Boston Bruins destroy the Montreal Canadians 7-0 on Thursday, I am officially predicting Boston to win a 7 game series if these two teams meet in the playoffs (which they are currently seeded to do). That Krejci-Lucic-Horton line is something special, Chara is one of the most valuable players in the whole league, and they have the best 1-2 punch in goal (though some Canucks fans may debate that last point). I think this team would have gone to the Stanley Cup playoffs had Krejci not been hurt, though they likely would have lost to Chicago. Kaberle was a great addition to this line-up, they have some fine young players who have not yet reached peak production, and they have the Toronto Maple Leafs #1 pick in the next draft.
Now is a good time for Boston Bruins fans to get excited.
