Bruins’ four-year playoff run has been epic

There will come a day when current members of the Boston Bruins will assemble to see who’s gotten fat, who’s gotten gray, who’s gotten bald, and who looks as if he could double-shift while also putting in time on both the PP and PK units (hold all calls, we have a winner here, and his name is Zdeno Chara).

And when they do, I submit they will be able to say, without fear of embarrassment or contradiction, that they have come to realize that they once participated in a four-year run of roller-coaster highs and lows no other team in the history of North American team sport had ever experienced.
