2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs in The Tailgate Posted April 11, 2012 The Bruins shouldn't lose to the Caps, but anything could happen. The Bruins absolutely played their way out of the funk they were in in the second half of the season and have been rounding nicely into playoff form. McQuaid is still out after that dirty hit Chimera the last time they met, and I'm sure the Bruins will want to say a hearty hello to him when they meet. I'd like to see the Pens get bitchslapped like the whiney punks they are. Yeah, that's right you heard me. From Lemieux on down they can dish it out but they can't take it. There, I said it. They're a highly skilled team, they don't need to behave like that. Really, I'd like it best if neither of these teams could advance, but anyway, Go Flyers! Though I'd love to see Ottawa prevail, I don't think that happens. Florida/NJ? I struggle to care, honestly. Florida played the Bruins tough this year. NJ plays the most boring hockey to watch. In the west, I'd love to see St. Louis win through to the finals.
