Power Rankings: Bruins at No. 8


With the regular season over, the Bruins settled in at No. 8 in ESPN.com's NHL Power Rankings.

In his writeup on the team, ESPN.com's Scott Burnside wonders if the Bruins -- 2-5-2 in their final nine games of the regular season -- would be able to turn it on in the playoffs. He writes:

"It was a disappointing end to a season that came with great expectations for a deep, talented team. All of that will be forgotten if they can flip that switch we know exists in the Bruins' locker room."

The Bruins' first-round playoff opponent, the Maple Leafs, check in at No. 10 (for what that's worth).
