Bruins’ Stanley Cup Window Hasn’t Slammed Shut, But It’s Closing

If you’re a Boston Bruins fan and you look at the body of work over the past decade – a Stanley Cup, two Presidents’ Trophies, three appearances in the Stanley Cup final and enough individual accolades to fill a trophy case – and you have to feel pretty amazing. And if you’re a hockey fan in a market other than Chicago, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, St. Louis or Washington, you swap your team’s accomplishments for the Bruins’ in a heartbeat.

But as you watched the Bruins struggled to score goals against a Tampa Bay Lightning team that was better in every aspect of the game, you have to wonder if this lovely ride has not come to an end. Even if the Bruins do manage to re-sign defenseman Torey Krug – which in all likelihood they won’t – this certainly has the feeling of a team that is on the decline. And what seals the deal is that even they seem to know it. The Bruins’ best chance to win the Stanley Cup was not this season, even though they finished first overall in the regular season standings. Their best opportunity to get their names on the Cup again sailed away when they lost on home ice in Game 7 against the Blues last year.
