Transitioning from a record-breaking regular season to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Boston Bruins encountered a harsh shift in fortunes this spring.

Their remarkable 65 regular-season wins set high expectations, but postseason realities brought disappointment.

Facing the underestimated Florida Panthers, the Bruins found themselves in a thrilling Game 7 overtime battle, witnessing an unexpected comeback that sealed their playoff fate.

The aftermath signaled change, with the retirement of Patrice Bergeron and imminent departures altering the team's landscape.


Looking ahead to the 2024 season, the Bruins are favored to secure a playoff berth, boasting an 80% chance according to BetOnline.org.

The revamped lineup features familiar faces like James van Riemsdyk and Milan Lucic alongside fresh talents Morgan Geekie, Jesper Boqvist, and Kevin Shattenkirk, as the Bruins strive for redemption and renewal on the ice.
