The Bruins Are In The Playoffs, But That Doesn't Mean They Can Win The Cup

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli was all smiles at the TSN studios on Tuesday night, taking in the NHL Draft Lottery. His team had the luck of acquiring a first round draft pick from the Toronto Maple Leafs, who finished much lower than they had hoped this past season. As a result, Chiarelli and the Bruins have the second overall pick in June's Entry Draft.

It appears that the Bruins won't have any silly Stanley Cup distractions, though, while figuring out who they're going to select with that second pick. According to statistical mumbo jumbo at Whatifsports.com, the B's have a zero percent chance at winning the Stanley Cup.

Zero. No chance. Impossible.

And yes, they are in the playoffs. They kick off their first round series with the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night. Might as well not even make the trek, Bruins. Savor that draft pick.
