Bruins best and worst moments of season
When asked about his favorite moment from this past season, it was difficult for Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli to answer the question. After all, the 82-game regular season is long and full of ups and downs, and it’s not Chiarelli’s charge to take snapshots during the season and then rate them prior to the start of the playoffs.
