Bruins clinch Presidents' Trophy with win over Sabres


Buffalo Sabres @ Boston Bruins game summary video, on April 12, 2014.
The good news after today's game against the Buffalo Sabres is that the Bruins have clinched the President's Trophy as the NHL's best team during the regular season with their 4-1 win over the Sabres. The bad news is that Patrice Bergeron did not play in the third period for an undisclosed reason and Daniel Paille needed help to get to the locker room and looked woozy after taking a big hit from Sabres Jake McCabe. This is most likely Paille's third concussion of the season and that is scary to have that amount of concussions during one season. We hope he is ok and that he recovers from this.
