McCarthy: Coming to terms with a Bruins ending nobody wanted

It wasn’t supposed to end like this. Or maybe it was. With all my heart as a Bruins fan, I just didn’t want it to. Sunday night’s Game 7 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers (seriously, the Panthers?) wasn't just a shocking finish to a season in which the Bruins set the NHL record for points and wins, it was an appropriately devastating end to an entire generation of Boston Bruins hockey. As much as I wished for a fairytale ending for the Patrice Bergeron-era Bruins, it was never meant to be. And it sucks.
