At this point of the season we can't afford to lose our best player for an extended period of time but that's exactly what just happened. I am more incensed with the lack of fire that the Bruins showed after the hit, than I am with the actual hit itself. I thought hockey teams were like families? If so they treated Marc Savard like a red headed step child.
Current standing for each division:
As you can see the B's have a few games in hand against the Canadians. Lets hope we can make it to the playoffs and get to the Stanley cup finals. I mean why did my tickets go up 20% for next year if we ain't making it to the playoffs.
