    The Bruins' power play is the best it's been in years. When the Boston Bruins qualified for the Stanley Cup final in 2011, I managed to purchase tickets for Games 3 and 4 for Wayne McDonald.

Indeed, the first round has become almost an annual tripwire for the Bruins, with lower seeds extending them to overtime of Game 7 in each of the past three springs. " We certainly learned from all those Game 7s that we've had to go through in the first round that it is important to be on top of your game at the end of the year and not limp in to the playoffs," Julien said, " which I thought we did at times after we solidified our playoff spot."
