Red hot Bruins have created space atop the Atlantic
Following a couple of stumbles coming out of the Sochi Winter Olympic break, Boston has righted the ship and have reeled off seven straight wins. The Bruins are getting it done on both sides of the red line as they have outscored their opponents 28-11 and own a 231-182 shots for advantage during the streak. Boston is one point ahead of Pittsburgh for top spot in the race for home ice advantage in the Eastern Conference.
Carolina Hurricanes playoff aspirations are slowly slipping away
Despite two straight wins (Rangers and Sabres) a 4-8 run that began in early February has Carolina on the verge of missing the playoffs for a fifth year in a row. The Hurricanes owned a share of the eighth spot in the East back on February 1, 2014, but now find themselves six points back – and they have to jump over five teams now. Earning eight out of a possible 24 points is a sure-fire way to get shut out of the playoff party.
