FINAL: Bruins 3 Blackhawks 0

The Bruins are the best team in the NHL. Period.  I dont care that the winning streak is over, there is no other team in the NHL even in their hemisphere.  In their last 27 games, they have only two regulation losses and last night absolutely made the Blackhawks their bitch.

Patrice Bergeron scored two goals and now has six goals in his last five games.  Tuukka Rask made 28 saves and got his league leading seventh shutout.  The dude has to be considered the favorite for the Vezina.  Anyone who thinks he isnt, is an asshole.

Anyway, the Bruins now have a 15 point lead over the second place Canadiens and if they tie the Capitals on Saturday or if the Tampon Bay Lightning lose, they will clinch the Atlantic Division.

On a side note, the Blackhawks could have clinched a playoff spot with a win against the Bruins.  And they failed.  Sucks to be them.
