Bruins, Stars meet on opposite ends of spectrum

DALLAS -- When the Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars meet Friday night at American Airlines Center, it's a game that will offer an interesting study in contrasts.

That's because the Bruins (45-17-10) head into Friday's tilt fresh off clinching a playoff spot for the ninth time in the past 11 seasons thanks to a 2-1 overtime loss at St. Louis on Wednesday.

"Well, it's step one, right? Going into the season, we wanted to make the playoffs, be a Stanley Cup contender, at some point hopefully you're a Stanley Cup favorite," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said postgame in St. Louis. "That's kind of where it goes from there, but right now we got in, so we're going to be a contender, right? That's the good news. Now going forward, we want to be in the best position possible."
