The Bruins' run is remarkable 

May, 6, 2010

I wonder just how many injuries the Boston Bruins can withstand and keep moving forward in this impossible-to-predict playoff spring.

Late in the regular season, they lost top pivot Marc Savard to a concussion as a result of a cheap shot from Pittsburgh Penguins winger Matt Cooke. Without Savard, the Bruins were able to find themselves down the stretch and nail down a playoff spot. They played so well, Savard was able to return to action in the second round.

Down time for the Red Sox. Seems like the Pats' dynasty is over. (Maybe.) Celtics in a tough series with the Cavs. It's Boston's time to shine on the ice, though -- go get it, Beantowners, and become Insiders in the process.
