Too late to tank it now.

Don't lose faith, there's always next year. Keep that dream alive.

In response to the OP. IF this team can get healthy and IF the kids get a boost from some playoff adrenaline and IF, say Mrazek plays like Halak did for Montreal in 2010 and IF Babcock starts making better decisions and IF they get some puck luck, then maybe they can squirm their way out of the first round. But obviously that's a lot of IFs.

Sheahan hurt during this game. Won't play Saturday. Datsyuk questionable as well. Ladies and gents, your 2nd line center..................Joakim Andersson.

Just watched Babcoks post-game.

He's clearly blaming tonight's loss on goaltending. Both goalies. But seemingly more so Howard. I've actually never heard him throw a goalie under the bus like he did. His comments were tactful, but it's obvious what he was trying to say.

If Mrazek gets us into the playoffs, there's no way Howard will start.  Even Babcock isn't that stupid.  You don't punish a young goalie who carries you into the playoffs by benching him once the playoffs begin.  Bad for morale.  
This could be the last (hopefully) that we've seen of Howard as the number one goalie.

He punished Kindl for scoring a goal and making a beautiful breakaway pass on Abdlekader's goal last game but doesn't punish Ericsson for being useless. He punishes Weiss for turning the puck over vs Boston but refuses to punish Nyquist, who turned the puck over at least six time tonight. I say he has the potential to be "that stupid".

See, even rick zombo doesn't think we're making the playoffs now.   :confused:

Hey now. I didn't say that. I was merely saying that maybe The Todd would do well here if Babcock leaves. I'd probably rather Blashill just because he'd probably use the kids properly.
