There's one thing to be worried about during recent rough stretch for Bruins

After a 10-game win streak, the Boston Bruins are mired in a rough stretch that has seen the club go 1-3-0, including two consecutive losses to non-playoff teams.

In those recent losses, especially Tuesday night in Chicago, the Bruins have looked exactly like what they are. A team on a historic pace, that has already clinched a playoff spot, and most-likely, a President's Trophy.

They're playing BORED, plain and simple. It's not surprising and honestly, not that concerning.

However, as Ty Anderson pointed out, there is one thing about this Bruins team that fans should be worried about. As per Anderson:

''Honestly, the only thing I find concerning of late: I really don't think any of the defensemen involved in this competition for playoff ice time have done anything to separate themselves from one another.''

None of, Brandon Carlo, Derek Forbort, Connor Clifton and Matthew Grzelcyk - the four guys fighting for three spots - haven't stood out to make the decision easier for Jim Montgomery.

Come playoffs it will be surprising to not see Forbort in the lineup every night. He's a guy you need in the postseason and he proved that last year.

And Forbort has played best with Clifton on the right side, who in turn, has had a massive breakout season for Boston. Although he struggled last night against the Blackhawks, he should bounce back.

So, who should be the odd man out?
