Canadiens Help Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot



Boston Bruins

Yes, you read that right; the Montreal Canadiens helped clinch a 2024 Stanley Cup playoff berth for the Boston Bruins.

With their 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, the longest-standing rival of the Boston Bruins, the Montreal Canadiens ironically solidified an eighth-straight playoff birth for the Bruins. After they failed to register a point in a 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night, the idle Bruins benefitted from an upstart Canadiens team playing for pride that beat a Flyers team that is now suddenly on the verge of sliding into a wild card slot.

Thanks to the New York Islanders beating the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Thursday night, the Boston Bruins also remained in first place in the Atlantic division. However, with the Carolina Hurricanes beating the Detroit Red Wings 4-0 and also clinching a playoff berth, the Bruins (74 GP, 42-17-15, 99 pts) fell into the fourth seed in the race for the Presidents Trophy behind the Hurricanes (74 GP, 46-21-7, 99 pts), the Dallas Stars (73 GP, 45-19-9, 99 pts) and the New York Rangers (72 GP, 48-20-4, 100 pts).
