Just hangin’ around
Despite having a solid three days off, this might be one of the toughest stretches of the year for the Bruins -- because they have to watch while the playoff races play out.

Tomorrow, in particular, is an important day in terms of playoff seeding.

Tuesday, Mar 13, 2007…
Senators vs. Rangers, 7:00 p.m.
Panthers vs. Hurricanes, 7:00 p.m.
Lightning vs. Maple Leafs, 7:30 p.m.
Islanders vs. Canadiens, 7:30 p.m.

Notice how the above teams stack up against the B’s…

#, Team, GP, Pts
8. Rangers, 69, 76
9. Carolina, 70, 76
10. Toronto, 69, 75
11. Montreal, 70, 74
12. Boston, 69, 71
13. Florida, 69, 71

Obviously, Our Boys kept themselves in the race by earning two points against the Detroit Red Wings yesterday. But in turn, we need some help from the Senators, Lightning and Islanders, without the use of tiebreakers, mind you.

And, quite frankly, I am not sure who to root for in the Carolina vs. Panthers match up.

Bottom line: Parity stinks.

Savvy’s spectacular
Marc Savard continues to light up the league.

Fifth in the league in scoring (88 pts.) and third in the league for assists (67), Savvy has been an invaluable asset to the Bruins this year and may well be able to eclipse his career best totals in assists (69) and points (97).

And with 21 goals, it would not be a stretch to imagine the forward besting his 28 goals from a year ago.

Timmy’s terrific
Tim Thomas impressed his hometown yesterday with an outstanding effort.

But it’s actually not all that surprising.

With 29 wins this year (the most since Andrew Raycroft in 2003-04), Thomas has a pretty good chance of catching Byron Dafoe’s 35 win mark from 2001-02.

Before that, you have to go to Andy Moog’s 37-14-3 record from 1992-93.

And should the B’s make the playoffs, it is a sure bet that Timmy’s record will be right around that 37-win total -- and could be near Pete Peters 40-win mark of 1982-83.

Last year’s Seventh Player Award winner is making another bid for the fan awarded trophy this year.

He played in his 100th NHL game Sunday in Detroit, beating the Red Wings 6-3 and, according to NHL.com, Thomas has established career season-highs in games with 57 (previous high was 38 in 2005-06), minutes with 3134 (previous high was 2193 in 2005-06) and wins with 28 (previous high was 12 in 2005-06).
