Right now, everything with the Bruins is fine and dandy.

They have survived a scare from Toronto, made quick work of an inferior Rangers team, and pulled off the upset of the playoffs with their four-game ouster of the Penguins.

They are Destiny’s Children.

The only problem is, there is a team in the Midwest that feels the exact same way. And within just a couple of weeks, when their Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks is over, one of these teams is going to have the plug rudely pulled on all of their good vibrations.

No one knows that better than Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference. Before Ference raised the Stanley Cup with the B’s in 2011, he tasted a rancid defeat as a member of the Calgary Flames, who lost Game 7 to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004. The Cup was in the Flames’ grasp in Game 6 at home, but they lost that game on a late Lightning goal, and then the Bolts captured Game 7 in Tampa.

The difference in the feelings between 2004 and 2011?

“I don’t know what kind of rating you want to use, but it’s as bad as you can get to as good as you can get,” Ference said after the B’s Garden practice yesterday. “I think that when you lose, there’s nothing to hang your hat on. There’s absolutely no satisfaction with second place in this sport. It’s about the worst feeling I had in hockey, especially having that as your first experience (in the finals.) You have such high emotions about being there, you’ve put yourself in a situation of celebrating. You can picture those things at nighttime. So it’s tough when you lose. Obviously, when we won the last time, it was probably doubly as good for me than some of the guys who had never been there before. I knew I wouldn’t have to live with the strongest emotion from my career being failure. Because up until that point, it was. It’s the biggest feeling you have.”
