08:35 AM ET 05.04 | The Bruins will essentially have an extra two months to recover from this season, something that doesn't make the team's brass all that happy. "We did expect to get out of that first round this year. We were probably a little better than the team that won the Stanley Cup when you look at the skill level and the age of the players," said Bruins Principal owner Jeremy Jacobs. ... [Cam Neely] said a "philosophical change" might be in store for the power play after it once again let down the Black and Gold at the worst possible time, but there was no fist pounding on the table in fury one year removed from winning the Stanley Cup. Instead the Bruins President hoped his young nucleus of players learned from the mental and physical grind.

Enough of the dump and chase on the PP. The B's need playmakers on the man advantage.

I know they had some injury issues but they really hit a wall after December.

Very tough to repeat.

However, the Leafs have repeated the same thing since 1967, so it can't be that hard!

Makes one think (as I scratch my chin and look skyward...)

Not to put too fine a point on it Joe but I think you're looking in the wrong direction.

I agree with you.

The loss of Nathan Horton was also a contributing factor for the B's PP troubles.

Yeah, that didn't help matters much. I was hoping they'd stick Chara in front of the net on the PP. He's a big body.

If you count losing in OT of a game 7 as checking out, than you'd be right. That game could have ended either way.
