H/A: Home/Away. Assumes a team will win 75% of the available points in its home games, and 50% of the available points in its away games.

 

T8/C: Top 8/Crunchy. Assumes a team will win 75% of the available points vs. non-top-8 teams, and 50% of the available points vs. top-8 teams.

 

NOTE: The Bruins are without Marc Savard for some time and even if he returns he will likely not be full strength.  This could cause the Bruins to significantly underperform.
