The Boston Bruins clinched a playoff spot. Ryan Donato scored the only goal for the Boston Bruins in his second career NHL game. The Bruins lost 2-1 in overtime but gained a point in the loss. After the game Bruce Cassidy spoke and said “It’s step one. Going into the season we wanted to make the playoffs and be a Stanley Cup contender. Right now we got in and we’re going to be a contender, right? Now it’s about being in the best position possible going forward.” The Boston Bruins travel to Dallas to take on the Stars on Friday night.
