It's great if you can get it for the 1 extra home game BUT NOT in this condensed schedule---it is not worth it! It's also not worth it considering the parity of the teams in the East. Playing for 2nd or first and be rewarded by having to go up against Lundquist (potentially) in the first round is not really a reward.
The biggest need for the Bruins is rest and health. Their schedule sucks big time compared to some of the other contenders down the stretch. I say give Chara a game day off, Lucic a game day off, Horton, and so on...and some of the other regulars that log a ton of minutes. Spread that out of course. It does not matter if the B's finish 2nd, 4th or 5th---it really doesn't at this point.
The B's can beat ANYONE on the road or home when they are rested and healthy. Don't sacrafice what's most important by expending all your energy in this brutal regular season grind.
