Both teams have great goal tending in Tuukka Rask & Ryan Miller. The key to this matchup is if the Bruins can overcome their loss of Savard and Seidenberg, 2 guys that will be missed come playoff time. The Bruins are a gritty team that have proved they can overcome adversity but I don’t like their chances without Savard in this lineup. They don’t have the goal scoring power they need to go deep into the playoffs and unfortunately they face Miller, possibly the best in the business right now. I don’t see the B’s getting past the Sabers but I hope they prove me wrong.
