#2590822 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by derblaueClaus on 08 April 2015 - 09:25 PM

Yep, if BOS looses to the caps tonight, they will be tied in points with Ottawa (95) ( this is there game in hand) so both Ottawa and Boston will be 1 back from the Pens (96) and 2 behind us (97) Boston has Florida and Tampa to play, Pitt has NYI and Buffalo to play. Boston could be out if they were to loose the next game and only get a point in their last. Pitt would need to loose both OR get help from Ottawa...but all of these scenarios are dependant on the other teams.

 

But they won't be out both. We have 3 teams fighting for two wildcard spots. Two of them will make it.

If we only get 1 point in the next two games, chances then? 

 

Boston would need to drop four points (including the game tonight), Ottawa one and the Pens three.

 

So essentially to kick us out Boston at least needs to win one game + one OT/SO loss, Ottawa needs two wins and the Pens need to win one. If all this happens we're out. If only one of these things don't happen we're in.

 

Edit : Small mistake on my side. Like us Pens only need to win one game in regulation, because of their then better ROW. But if the Pens win only in SO, we'd have the tiebreaker because the season series is 2:1 for Detroit.




#2590792 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

If you're the New York Rangers, who could finish first in the Eastern Conference, which of the teams that you could see in the first round is the team you do not want to see in the first round?

 

"I wouldn't want to play the Detroit Red Wings. I wouldn't want to play Detroit because of Mike Babcock. I wouldn't want to play Detroit because of [Henrik] Zetterberg and [Pavel] Datsyuk and [Niklas] Kronwall. They have huge leadership resources. They've got somebody that I think is the best coach in the National Hockey League, who can really prepare in a seven-game series. That's the team. It would not be fun playing Detroit. I would not want to play them."

 

Interesting thoughts here by Pierre. You can ***** about him being creepy as you want but he knows his hockey. Not sure if I agree with him and that leadership and Babs are enough for us to overcome a team stacked like the Rangers. But we will put up fight, no doubt.

So capitals win and we are in or not yet?

 

Nope, not yet. We still need two points of the last two games, or Ottawa dropping two,Boston only getting three (of their last three) and Pens only getting one. But our chances for third place are increased if the Caps win tonight.




#2590696 Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

Obviously that weakens our team considerably. Let's just hope that Abby recovers soon. We need big guys who are able to crash the net.

Lol, Kings trailing the Oilers 1 :2 right now while looking in to the wildcard spots from the outside. Playoffs without Kings and Boston or Pens ? Wow.




#2590548 4/7 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes 2 at Red Wings 3

Carolina and Montreal without Pacioretty

 An already clinched Montreal without Pacioretty. Those are absolutely winnable games for us. Pittsburgh on the other hand is in free fall right now and is still missing Malkin and Letang. It's Pittsburgh and maybe even Boston (depending how they play their third last game) that is in deep trouble, not us.

It's just too much fun seeing Pittsburgh s***ting the bed. GO Sens !

The hilarity if Pittsburgh misses is just too tempting to root for them. Especially after Erhoff didn't want to go to Detroit. Wings will hold their own, so GO Sens !




#2589731 Who do you hope the Wings play in the 1st Round?

Posted by derblaueClaus on 05 April 2015 - 09:35 PM

Is "The Buffalo Sabres" allowed as an answer ?




#2589644 4/5 GDT : Washington Capitals 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by derblaueClaus on 05 April 2015 - 07:00 PM

Agreed. I guess I'm just not very confident in those two games being as easy as they should be on paper to win. The Wings look defeated and either gassed and/or injured as a group. Helm and Nyquist are the only players that looked like they had anything in the tank tonight.

 

I don't think they looked gassed the second and third period tonight. They just had a very well coached quality team in front of them. That should be different with Carolina. Plus opposite to our usual games against bottom feeders I'm optimistic that we will be desperate enough to fight through these games if things don't go our way. Wings showed that kind of attitude the last two games.

That's what you get for not starting on time and trying to play come back against a very good goalie and Trotz as coach. The Wings played well in the second and third period, but they aren't skilled enough to win games with 40 minute efforts.

Both Carolina games are must-wins and maybe try to steal a point in Montreal. It's truly astounding that it has come to this point. What a collapse.

 

Agreed, but the we also didn't have puck luck today. In end it's simple : Win the two games against Carolina and we're in. It's still in our own hands.

How did that puck stay out ?




#2589216 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2 (SO)

Posted by derblaueClaus on 04 April 2015 - 08:58 PM

Anybody who thinks the Wings "don't care" or "don't want it" should rewatch that celebration.

 

They should watch the whole third + OT. The whole team was fighting like lions out there.

Finally. They earned this.
