8 a.m. ET: It all comes down to Sunday night for the Bruins and a handful of other Eastern Conference teams, as the B’s take on the Ottawa Senators in a rescheduled game. The B’s and Sens were supposed to square off on April 15, but that was postponed due to the horrific events at the Boston Marathon. Now the two teams must play on the “new” final day of the season, the second of a back-to-back for both teams. The Bruins coughed up another third-period lead Saturday night in Washington, dropping an overtime decision to the Capitals. The Senators, meanwhile, fell to the Flyers in Ottawa. The B’s ability to pick up a point against the Caps puts them in position to win the Northeast Division title with a win on Sunday. The Bruins need a win to wrap up the title, though, as an overtime loss won’t be enough to hold off the Canadiens who finished the season Saturday night.

While winning the division crown would be nice, the Bruins need a strong showing Sunday just to get going in the right direction headed into the playoffs. They were actually pretty good for two periods Saturday night, but the penalty kill fell apart in the third period, as the Bruins gave up two goals in the third before giving up another power-play tally in overtime. Puck drop from the Garden is slated for 7 p.m. Sunday night.
