Bruins know best record won\'t help them
The Boston Bruins won the Presidents\' Trophy by leading the NHL with 117 points. Another number shows just how much, or little, that means.

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins won the Presidents' Trophy by leading the NHL with 117 points.

Another number shows just how much, or little, that means.

"I heard about 40 percent of the series are upsets in the first round," Boston coach Claude Julien said.

"You have teams that have high expectations. You have teams that have nothing to lose and everything to gain. So that certainly makes that first round a challenge."

That begins for top-seeded Boston on Friday night against eighth-seeded Detroit.

The Red Wings had 24 fewer points in the regular season but went 3-1 against the Bruins, a sign that Detroit's speedy, puck-possession style can overcome Boston's physical approach.

"I think we're complete," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "I think we're way better than people think."
