Devils beat Bruins in the most meaningless game of the regular season

In game 82 of the regular season, the Boston Bruins had absolutely nothing to play for as they traveled to Newark, NJ to meet the Devils yesterday afternoon.

Zdeno Chara and Mark Recchi didn't even make the trip and Tim Thomas sat on the bench.

New Jersey (38-39-5) is missing out on the postseason despite a great run under interim head coach Jacques Lemaire. They sent him out a winner with a 3-2 victory at the Prudential Center.

He's supposedly retiring (for the third time) but I'll believe it when I see it.

I won't bore you with the details of a game that didn't matter and that I barely paid any attention to.

Rich Peverley (18th of the season, from Michael Ryder and Andrew Ference) and Chris Kelly (14th of the season, from Dennis Seidenberg and Johnny Boychuk) had the goals for Boston (46-25-11).

Tuukka Rask made 29 saves in what was likely his last start of the season.

Now is the time we've all been waiting for: Bruins vs. Canadiens in Round 1 of the NHL playoffs. Game 1 is Thursday at TD Garden with Game 2 Saturday night at TD Garden. Game 3 (Monday) and Game 4 (Thursday) are at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Let the real fun begin.
