2011 Boston Bruins draft pick update; 06 Dec.

The Boston Bruins blew a golden opportunity to move up in the standings while keeping the Toronto Maple Leafs down when they allowed a late power play goal and then lost the shootout despite a sensational performance from Tim Thomas (see below). It was clearly a missed opportunity after Toronto had suffered demoralizing losses to Tampa Bay and Edmonton last week.

Even with the win, however, Toronto's move from 27th to 26th was short-lived, because the Florida Panthers won their own shootout to leapfrog back over the Leafs in the standings by virtue of having more wins (they are tied with 22 points each).

The problem for those hoping for a top-three pick for the Bruins is that a good number of teams around the Leafs have failed to get wins and put some distance between them (Florida, Calgary, Edmonton, Buffalo to name a few). The New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders are fading fast, and it appears that nobody is going to challenge the Isles for hapless futility this year. They've lost three games in a row and are just 1-6-3 in their last 10. How's that coaching change working out?
