The Bruins are in playoff preparation mode as they close out the regular season and that means players such as Zdeno Chara, Jarome Iginla, Tuukka Rask and even Patrice Bergeron are being rested in these final games.
Does that make sense?
Absolutely, Mike Milbury tells Michael Felger on Cross Check:
"There's no manual at the end of the year when your team is better than everybody else at least in terms of points," Milbury said. "There's no history to tell you this is the right way to go. You have to go by gut feel and we'll all second guess if things go wrong. But you have to guess that Zdeno Chara could use a rest, that Bergeron, who's played every game, could use a rest."
