Shaughnessy: Bruins can flip the switch

The Bruins aren's exactly entering the playoffs on a roll. The B's would have like to have won their division and improved their playoff seeding, but weekend losses to the Captials and Senators took care of that.

Can they turn it on now that's it's playoff time? That's the question posed to Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe and Rich Toucher on 98.5 The Sports Hub on "Uno Sports Tonight." They open as the No. 4 seed at home against the No. 5 Maple Leafs.

Said Toucher: "Not only are they not rested. They're cold. Plus all of sudden, they're struggling short-handed. They're always struggling on the power play. What really scares me is people that say 'They're showing more fight.' You lost. You lost two games you needed to win."

Shaughnessy isn't buying that the slump will continue.

"It's all teed up for them to lose," Shaughnessy said. "But I'm a glass half-full kind a guy. I choose to think it's going to kick itself.  They can 'flip the switch' as they say."
