Mike Petraglia, DJ Bean on Patrice Bergeron, Daniel Paille and Bruins in Stanley Cup playoffs

WEEI.com’s Mike Petraglia and DJ Bean assess the Stanley Cup [1] playoff chances of the Bruins after they clinched the Presidents’ Trophy Saturday with a 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres [2]. The Bruins won their 54th game of the season, giving them 117 points on the season but lost the services of Daniel Paille [3] after a big hit by Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe. Patrice Bergeron [4] also scored his 30th goal of the season but did not play the third period after a very minor injury, according to head coach Claude Julien [5]. Bergeron is expected to be ready when the Stanley Cup [6] playoffs begin this week.
