If I am looking at it correctly, 3 points in the Wings last 4 games assures a playoff birth.

That was big for us. Playoff odds just went up 6.5% because of that result.

So much for that "easy" NJ schedule huh? Easy schedules don't mean jack anymore. Yea it probably looks good on paper but sports are so unpredictable. Anyhow, thank you Calgary! Detroit owes you a case of beer.

3 points out of 8 possible, and Detroit is in the playoffs. And that's assuming everyone still wins out. Any further losses by New Jersey will make that number even smaller.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

That just proves it even further.  Schedule is irrelevant.  Calgary had nothing to play for and Jersey had everything to play for.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

So by my calculations we need to go 1-2-1 at worst in the next four games to make the playoffs. If toronto or jersey lose a single game each we only need 1 point to be in the playoffs! 23 straight is right on the horizon!

Don't forget Washington. They can still get to 91, though they can't win a tiebreaker against us.

 

Both Toronto ans Washington have tough games tomorrow, but regardless what they do our job is the same: Beat Buffalo then give everything we got to get at least a point in Pittsburgh.

We would still hold the last playoff spot in the West but I don't like our chances against many teams in the west this year.

So living in Calgary and result of this game aside, Giordano deserves some Norris consideration.

we need to go balls out tonight against the Sabres bag the 2 points and take the pressure off. I think that would see us

home, cause i cant see NJ, Leafs and Caps winning all their remaining games and us not picking a point up in ours.

I think at this point it's a given we're going to make the playoffs. I'm more interested in whether or not we hold that 7th spot, which we're battling Columbus for. Our remaining games are pretty similar. We play Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Carolina and St Louis. Columbus plays Phoenix, Dallas, Tampa and Florida. Phoenix and Dallas are fighting for the playoffs and only one will make it, so they'll be pretty desperate so I'm hoping those are hard games for Columbus. Florida should be a win and it's hard to say for Tampa. I think they'll get at least 4 points, but not 7. I think we can beat Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Carolina but then maybe choke against St Louis, but on the other hand its the last game of the season so that could be used to our advantage if we're not clearly separated from Columbus. I'm expecting 6 points.

 

 

I just really want to play Pittsbrugh in the first round.

Good to see those extremely low percentages for the other teams looking in.
