Bruins fans will finally get a glimpse of 2015 first-round pick Zach Senyshyn.The team recalled Senyshyn — along with Trent Frederic — from Providence on an emergency basis on Wednesday. Considering Frederic has skated 13 games at the NHL level this season, it’s the call-up of Senyshyn that should interest fans the most over the team’s final two regular-season games.
The 22-year-old forward was selected with the 15th overall pick in 2015 — after the Bruins selected Jakub Zboril at No. 13 and Jake DeBrusk at No. 14. Senyshyn spent the next two seasons in the OHL before joining the AHL Providence Bruins for the 2017 postseason. He’s since spent two seasons with Providence, posting 26-24-50 totals in 128 games at the AHL level.
Head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed that Senyshyn will be making his NHL debut on Thursday night.On Tuesday, the Bruins clinched home-ice advantage for their upcoming first-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Cassidy will rest Chris Wagner and may decide to give some rest to some of his regulars over the final two games. Thus, the opportunity has presented itself to Senyshyn.
Wagner is slated to rest his lower-body injury Thursday, which could allow him to return to action for the team’s regular-season finale Saturday against the Lightning. In Wagner’s absence, Zach Senyshyn is set to make his NHL debut against Minnesota.The Columbus Blue Jackets fell into a tie for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference, losing 6-2 to the Boston Bruins at Nationwide Arena on Tuesday.
The Blue Jackets (45-31-4) and the Montreal Canadiens trail the Carolina Hurricanes by one point for the first wild card. Each of the three has two games remaining. Columbus has more regulation/overtime wins than Montreal (44 to 41).
The Blue Jackets would have clinched a playoff berth with a win and a regulation loss by the Canadiens, who defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2.
“We’ve got another opportunity next game,” Columbus captain Nick Foligno said. “Obviously disappointing but we cannot worry about this one. It’s in the past now.”
The Bruins (48-23-9) clinched second place in the Atlantic Division. They will play the third-place Maple Leafs, who lost 4-1 to the Hurricanes, in the Eastern Conference First Round and have home-ice advantage in the series.
“That’s what we’ve been battling for all year,” Boston forward Brad Marchand said. “It will be good to have home ice.”Marchand had a goal and an assist to become the 10th player in Bruins history with a 100-point season (36 goals, 64 assists). It is the most points by a Boston player since Joe Thornton had 101 in 2002-03.
“It’s a cool personal stat, but it all goes toward the same goal to get to the playoffs and we’re right there,” Marchand said.Jake DeBrusk had two goals and an assist, and Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston, which led 5-0 early in the third period.”They were playing for a purpose,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. “They were playing for something. They played better than we did.”
Columbus had outscored opponents 24-4 during a five-game winning streak.Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky was pulled at 16:00 of the second period after allowing four goals on 23 shots. Joonas Korpisalo allowed two goals on five shots.
DeBrusk made it 1-0 at 1:58 of the first period when his deflection of a David Krejci pass went high over the goal, bounced off the top of the net and went off Bobrovsky’s back and in.”Just some puck luck, I’m not sure,” DeBrusk said.
Marcus Johansson made it 2-0 at 17:27 of the first, scoring on a rebound after Bobrovsky made a left pad save on a shot from the slot by Charlie Coyle.
The Tampa Bay Lightning clinched the Presidents’ Trophy in mid-March and will have home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs. Which team the Lightning will host in the first round, however, remains to be determined.
If the playoffs started today, the Lightning would host the Columbus Blue Jackets, who own a tiebreaker over the Montreal Canadiens. The Blue Jackets dropped into the second wild-card spot on Tuesday when the Boston Bruins snapped their five-game win streak in a 6-2 rout.
The Canadiens have put together back-to-back wins since falling to the Blue Jackets last Thursday. Montreal must finish the regular season with more points than Columbus to clinch a playoff spot since the Blue Jackets own the non-shootout wins tiebreaker with 44 to the Canadiens’ 41. Both teams are currently one point back of the Carolina Hurricanes, who have 42 regulation/overtime wins this season.
In what would likely be a worst-case scenario for the Lightning, Tampa Bay could still end up hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins, who sit currently third in the Metropolitan with 97 points.
All four of the Lightning’s potential opponents are off Wednesday and the race for the final spots will continue Thursday. Of the group, only Montreal will play their final two games against teams currently in playoff positions – the Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs.
