lol if the Rangers get two and the Wings get one, even if we win we'd be four behind both of them.

 

No we'd be 3 behind Detroit, 5 behind nyr

 

Ideal result. Wings lose in regulation and we win in any fashion

 

At least we play the Rags once more, but overall the rangers have an easy schedule the rest of the season

 

Detroit is actually about to enter a very rough stretch

Put a fork in them. This season is done, Mates. I don't think this current incarnation of the Devils has the perseverance to reach 92 points.

I had it reversed...we're five back of the Rangers and four back of Detroit (thought it was the other way around).  So naturally the Rangers'll get a loser point in OT and Detroit'll win.

As I've been saying, the Devils just need to focus on getting to 92-93 points.  No way 8 other teams get to 92 or 93 points.

You're right and the Devils will be one of the 8 teams

I choose to be realistic instead of optimistic. The fall to the ground isn't as painful.

I'm glad you find it realistic that the Devils will finish with 92 points.

Eight teams got to 92 in 2011-12 and 93 in 2010-11.  In fact 2009-10 is the only year since the lockout that the cutoff hasn't been 92 points or above.  And now you add Detroit and Columbus into the mix it just gets tougher both seeing us in the top eight and seeing 92 as the cutoff point.

 

Essentially we'd have to go 13-5 or 12-4-2 just to GET to 93 at this point.  What if anything this team has shown this year makes you think that's possible?  We've had one three-game winning streak in the last season plus.

I can't see the Devils doing any better than 8-5-5 the rest of the way. They do have a few soft opponents left (Car, Isles, Buf) but 88 points is their ceiling this year.

 

Columbus just kind of seems like destiny's darlings this year to make it

So how about Luongo posting a shutout in his Florida debut?

I feel so happy for him, he's finally in a place that actually wants him.  Hopefully he has a few good years left in him.

Nobody can ever see a hot streak coming.  That's the point.  

 

BTW, when was the last time this team scored 21 goals over a 5 game stretch?  While yes I am aware of the fact they've also given up 17 during said stretch, understand that 7 of those goals came in one game.

I really am not one to go back and talk about what Lou could have done, but Hemsky was another player just given away for free.

 

3A already today. Might take Ruutu months to get 3 points.

Phoenix up 2-0 on Washington in the 3rd. Of course they lose 3-2. Of course

 

Toronto led Philly 2-0. Of course that game is 2-2 now. Of course. Toronto goes up 3-2, and of course Philly ties it with 2:30 left

 

and Ottawa won. What a surprise
