Wait, what happened to all the percentages?  Everyone else didn't lay down and die because the Wings won a few games?  Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but the teams out of the playoff hunt, as usual, are playing well and have beaten teams they shouldn't have.  So tonight's game is not a sure thing by any means.

We still need to win but there's more room for error than last year. We need 7 points as of today to clinch. Less if Washington and Toronto lose. We have a potential 12 points on the table. So we can afford to go 3-2-1 and still clinch.

Don't want to count chickens before they hatch, but that's doable. And we don't have to rely on other teams losing like we did last year.

Bernier out three weeks with an MCL strain. Not good news for the Leafs.

Let's face it, even with him, there wasn't much hope for the Leafs. Reimer and that ahl goalie already ruined everything bernier did for them all year in a span of 8 games.

Jackets just effed up bad. Same with Washington, losing to a team with only 8 forwards for a lot of the night.

 

Pretty much the perfect night if the Wings finish the Sabres.

 

If my calcs are correct, the Wings only need 3 more wins now (including vs. Sabres) to clinch playoffs. So two more wins, if the Wings beat Buffalo.

It's about time Chicago did something right for once. Felt weird cheering for them though.

Have to love this time of year. Checking scores every few minutes, logging in for the updated standings, doing the math to see how many possible points other teas have left vs us.... it is GREAT! Not as great as running away with things, but still a ton of fun. BTW if I have done the math correctly-we need 2 more wins and 1 NJ loss to clinch! Then we win the tie breakers on ROW.

Bruins and Flyers tied at 2, second intermission. Bruins don't seem especially engaged.

Bruins score 2 quick ones, up 4-2 with 4 minutes to go and on the PP. 

 

Looks like the Flyers are about to get involved in the wildcard battle.

So the Max leafs can get is 92 right? It's only Washington won tonight so nothing really happened but they need to find some extra gear for the last games. You can't expect Nyquist to play like Stamkos forever.

No they can only max out at 90 now, as they've got 3 games left and that's it. It's between the Devils and Capitals, as the Leafs are done IMO.

 

Here's the remaining schedules:

 

NJ:

Mon vs Calgary

Thursday @ Ottawa

Friday vs NYI

Saturday vs Boston

 

Only good thing I see here is they've got the Bruins last which is a tough game. It's a longshot but the flames have been playing well of late. 1 loss in regulation from these 4 and the Devils can only max out at 90

 

WSH:

Tuesday @ St Louis

Thursday @ Carolina

Friday vs Chicago

Sunday vs Tampa

 

Washington have got the toughest schedule here, and I think it's going to be hard for them to beat the Blues, let alone the Hawks. We'll see though. Right now they can max out at 91, and obviously with any loss they can only get 89. 

 

Lets take care of our business still and we'll be fine.
