2 points on Detroit but they're idle. We need Detroit to lose in regulation tomorrow. But should they win, they need to win in regulation.

 

we gained 1 point on Philly, FWIW. And we play them next so a regulation win on them could close the gap fast

This is what happens when you consistently blow leads in the beginning of the season.

At this point, I'm cheering for the Wings. They only have a 2 point lead but also 2 games in hand, and we are out of match ups against them. Additionally they play Columbus twice coming up and we will probably find ourselves in a situation needing them to win.

That makes securing the 3rd slot in our division our best chance at getting a playoff seed. The Flyers and Rangers are up 4/3 points respectively, but only 1 game in hand and we play each of them. We have slightly more control over the 6th overall slot then the 8th overall at this point.

I've thought this for weeks.  We're not catching Detroit, as much as people want to complain they're terrible they still have some talented players, know what it takes as an organization and have great coaching, so long as Howard doesn't **** the bed they'll make the playoffs.  If anything our only chance to catch a wild card is if Tampa goes full retard and keeps collapsing, but I doubt they'll lose enough compared to our division teams for it to matter against us.

 

Tuesday's ginormous.  Win or go home basically.  Really we have to win the next two with Tampa and Boston coming up after that.  With our schedule anything less than 7-3 the rest of the month would be inexcusable and fatal.

Well the Sharks are beating Montreal.  So that's a good result so far.

Awesome ceremony in Dallas last night for Modano. Sure, it was a bit long, but he was everything for their franchise, and there were no stupid stunts like bringing the Cup and letting him skate around the ice with it one more time.

 

Just some very well done tributes, some great guests, and some great moments for a special player.

So I guess its time to track the progress of the devils playoff hopes. Dont have much hope to be honest.

 

Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Pitts look to be unreachable.. Wont be tracking unless they fall considerably.

 

TEAM - GR - PTS - MAX - DIFF

TBL  - 18 -  74 - 110 - (+7)

PHI* - 18 -  73 - 109 - (+6)

DET  - 19 -  71 - 109 - (+6)

NYR* - 18 -  72 - 108 - (+5)
CBJ  - 18 -  71 - 107 - (+4)

----------------------------

WSH  - 17 -  70 - 104 - (+1)

NJD  - 17 -  69 - 103 - EVEN

OTT  - 18 -  67 - 103 - EVEN

CAR  - 18 -  63 -  99 - (-4)

 

For tonight, Rangers play Wing, either team should lose in regulation. Since Rangers are in our division, it has an impact on division standings, if Wings lose, it has an impact on wild card.

I guess we should root for Detroit in regulation today, hard to say... Obviously either way we just want a 2-point game.

One thing to take into consideration is the Rangers easier schedule the rest of the way. Detroit may have a game in hand after this afternoon...but their schedule for the next 12 games is brutal

I think Philly and Tampa are going to collapse.

 

Tampa without St'Louis is a .500 club at best.  Stamkos production will be cut in half without St. Louis to give him space and set him up.

 

I don't think Philly has the defense or goaltending to keep it up.

 

Rangers are going to be hard to beat now.

Hilarious dive by St. Louis into the boards...very similar to the Avery/Jagr where he just plunged forward

No man, didn't you hear Pierre? That was a textbook crosscheck!

St. Louis is a diving, embellishing little POS. He's been that way for years. As a matter of fact, by the time he's done in NY, he'll have most people here thinking the same way.

I've thought this too about him for years. I really don't have a clue as to where people have this notion that he is a "really classy guy" that I have been hearing for years comes from.

Lady Byng 3x winner LOL. If he got as many penalties counted as he should have by diving and embellishing, he'd never have won any. That's another joke of an award like the Selke has become.
