At this point, checking the standings on TSN, 93 points gets our guys a playoff spot if everyone else wins out. Each point left on the table by TOR, WAS, CBJ, and NJ will lower it.

The win against BOS was huge, as most were writing the game off or hoping to steal a point. It isn't a lock yet to continue the streak, but it is looking pretty darn good at this point.

As others have said, it is unfortunate they do top three seeds by division then wildcard as the way things are going, the boys would have had a shot at getting the 6 seed under the old system.

That said, if they hold off CBJ and get the 7 seed, I like their chances. The emergence of the kid line is going to give the opposition d conniption fits if Z and Pav can come back healthy in the playoffs. Howie was back in form against Boston, and you can definitely make a case that he stole the game.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

unfortunately this doesn't matter due to the new format - have to catch the habs/tampa to get out of the wild cards

 

Yeah, I know... but for a while there we were just scratching, clawing, and holding on to 8th.

It's nice to see us putting together some wins, grabbing up some points and catching up to Philly and the Rags.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Don't get too comfortable, guys. We won three games, right? That means, if this season's pattern holds, we will drop the next two, maybe three. Lets us finish the season winning a couple games, though. If the pattern holds.

April 4 - Buffalo

April 5 - @Montreal

April 8 - @Buffalo

April 9 - @Pittsburgh

April 11 - Carolina

April 13 - @St. Louis

 

Those two home games are MUST WINS.

I actually like the fact that 3 of those 4 road games are going to be hard fought.

A real test for the playoffs.

Keep the foot on the gas, boys.

Sweet.

i just hope we dont think we just need to show up to beat the Sabres tomorrow, I honestly think we can win the next 3 games and if we do that then we are in it.

BUF is @STL today, and @DET tomorrow - that should improve the odds of us beating them even more.

 

The CBJ vs PHI game is gonna be a good one, as well as the BOS vs TOR.

I'm somehow more worried about losing to Buffalo than when the Wings played the Bruins...

The next 2 nights will be a lot less nerve wrecking is Columbus and Toronto lose tonight lol.

 

Also no excuse to lose to Buffalo tomorrow, as they are playing tonight as well.

Bruins and Leafs tied at one near the end of the first.

 

Flames up 2-0 on the Bolts, not sure what period.

 

Flyers and Jackets tied in the second.

 

Hurricanes up 3-0 on the Stars in the second.

 

Hurricanes seem to be clicking. Good thing we got those two points last night, as I'm not sure we win our game against the Hurricanes.

Jackets pull ahead with 2:53 left in the second.


Worth noting: the Jackets are right behind the Flyers in the standings. This...does not please Pens fans.

From the Leafs board when talking about players causing the team to tank.  :lol:

 

 

 

Franson is the best Tank Commander we've had on defence since Brett Lebda.
