The Bruins are a hockey team which while quite sound in many phases of the game, had a terrible time scoring goals this season. As a rule, although not always, scoring goes down for all teams in the NHL playoffs.

The Celtics are an older basketball team that needs a superior defensive effort to win consistently. As a rule, although not always, the NBA playoffs are a little easier on older teams than the regular season, and there aren't too many 121-116 track meet games, either.

Therefore, without doing anything rash like predicting even a first round playoff victory for either club (lack of goal scoring and lack of consistency are rather dire problems), it seems reasonable to forecast that Boston's two winter sports teams could be more competitive in the postseason than during the endless slog of their regular seasons.
