Boston puts away the Rags thankfully. So no ground lost to them

 

Also Anaheim crushes Carolina. Not that that was super important to us but...it helps

The PHI/WSH game and our loss basically nullifies those losses.

If you worry about what other teams are doing you're going to make yourself sick. The only way this team is going to make the playoffs is if they win. If it were just one other team in contention that would be easier but rooting for 5 or so teams to lose each night is a difficult strategy.

I fell asleep and missed everything that happened after 2-1 Bruins. Thanks Boston.

That's the point I've reached.  Just try to get 92 points and hope that it's somehow enough...like you posted, hoping for this team to lose and that team to lose gets exhausting pretty quickly.  Unfortunately I can't make a compelling case for the Devils being able to come up with more than 92 points, so if that's not enough, then it's not enough.

well technically lets say all the teams ahead of us would lose ALL their remaining games... and that we win like a few... "technically" that could be another way haha

So....did anyone actually think it would go THIS bad for Clarkson? 4 goals (10 points) in 42 games.

Don't worry. Leaf fans have pretty low expectations. Wendel Clark is a folk hero and he didn't do too much.

Not quite this bad, but I didn't expect it to go well. I pegged him for about 10 goals and 25-30 points. I'm glad to see it though. Was never a fan. Always thought he was a black hole at worst and lucky at best.

We all know what he was, but if TOR used him like NJ did it wouldn't look *this* bad. I mean, he goes from being a top 6 guy getting o-zone starts to playing third line checking winger on a bad possession team. He had 180 shots after 48 games last year, he has 77 after 42 this. If your only calling card is that you throw the puck on net a lot you're gonna look pretty poor playing 3rd line on a team that doesn't give you PP minutes or o-zone starts.

 

He has been pretty bad on his own, he had a poor start of everything, but you can't ignore that Carlyle is the terriblest of terrible coaches.

Clarkson was mostly a top 9 guy here, was getting time on the 2nd line once in awhile but he was mostly always on the 3rd line from what i remember

Damn that's crazy.

 

Poor Clarkie, another guy that's going to suffocate under the pressure of his contract.

 

I mean, I hate to say it, but this is the kinda contact that gets a guy buried in the minors in the latter half of the contract (or at least, would have.  I'm recalling something about that being done away-with in the new CBA)

I honestly don't think I did see it being this bad.

What a laugh. It's beating a dead horse but that situation is so great to see

What's up with Niemi, why is Stalock playing so much? I means Stalock has been really good, but what's up over there?

Niemi looked meh vs Buffalo, Stalock's been good. Running with the hot hand for now, I think.

Niemi hasn't looked all that good all season long.  Stalock has been significantly better.

Huge line brawl in the Phailures-Washington game, Phailures up 2-0. Toronto up 1-0 on the Rags after two. Hopefully Toronto holds on and the Phailures-Caps game ends in regulation.

The Leafs just gave up two short-handed goals to let the Rags tie it up. Mind boggling.

Apparently you can cross check someone in the back to set up a goal ala Scott Hartnell tonight.
