It was kind of funny when that Montreal player stole his teammate's goal.  He basically put his stick behind the goalie where all it could do was deflect a puck that was already a few inches away from going in.

There really aren't many 'Diablos' this season, the standing section's been like two-three rows deep at best most games I've seen this year.

does the entire section usually stand? Like you can't see the game unless your standing type of deal?

Key match ups tomorrow:

1). Pens @ Leafs. A regulation loss for TO means NJ jumps to 6th.

2). Rangers (8th, 25gms played) @ Jets (9th, 26 games played). Both teams have earned 28 points. Winner takes 8th.

Not so important:

Isles (10th) @ Lightning (12th). Hopefully, Tampa wins.

Winnipeg goes up 3-1 late, Rags done.  And so they tumble out of the playoff picture, at least for tonight.  :)  Exxxxxxcellent.

 

Devils in 6th, 9 points behind the Penguins and Habs.

A little bigger storyline might be Lundqvist. He looked in considerable pain toward the end of the game, thought he'd pull himself and ask Biron to come in if they weren't in the last minute of the game.

At the end of tomorrow, we might see the standings from 5-10th changed.

Key match ups tomorrow:

1). Sens (27gms-32pts) VS Buffalo. 5th place is on the line.

2). Habs at NJ (28gms-32pts). 6th place NJ needs to build a bigger cushion with the rest of the playoff hunters.

3). Rags (26gms-28pts) @ Pitt. 9th place Rags need a win.

4). Leafs (28gms-31pts) Jets (27gms-30pts). Battle between 7th and 8th

5). Isles (27gms-27pts) @ Panthers. 10th place Isles can jump ahead the Rags if everything goes their way.

If the Rags lose in regulation and the Islanders pull off the win tonight they will swap places in the standings.

 

It would be pretty cool to see the Islanders make the playoffs over the Rangers.

I am amazed how we shut down the Penguins for those two games. Just look at the Rangers right now, they are just lost. They are getting dominated and Hank is keeping this a 1-0 game. 15 minutes in and only 2 far distanced soft shots on goal for the Rags.

 

EDIT: Took them 17 minutes to get their first even strength shot.

The last time the Islanders made the playoffs was the 06-07 season. The fans over there deserve it especially after what Wang has put them through since taking over.

 

On a side note I wonder if Tim Thomas would show up to play in the playoffs.

If the Isles make the playoffs, it'll presumably be because Nabokov's on a roll.  Thomas ain't going to come back to be a backup at best.

I think Wang gets a undeserved bad rep as an owner. The guy has sunk a ton of his own money into the team, and kept the Isles in the area when he just as easily could have sold to someone who could have relocated the team. In fact he came up with a plan for a new arena that woud be entirely privately financed. He has stayed out of personnel decisions, and has never forced the team to dump salary for financial reasons so far as I can recall.

The Isles are one of those unlucky teams that are perennially bad, but not bad enough in the right years to get the good draft picks, save Tavares.

he also didn't fire mike milbury until 10 years after he should've which pretty much murdered the franchise. And then he kept him on after firing him to run the draft basically. And let's not forget him farcically hiring Neil Smith for about a week

Damn. Wish we got that extra point yesterday vs philly. With the Rags losing we could've had the chance to go 7 up on them with a win tonight.

Sens 3 Sabres 2. 3rd

Tomorrow has one key match up:

10th place Rags VS 8th place Carolina

The Devils will slide to 8th if Canes earn one point or more.
