We just need Toronto to lose to San Jose.  And then it'll be a perfect night.

I think we wanted Detroit to have a clean win over CLB, The Jackets have all the tie breakers on us, we have ROW on Detroit. 

The Leafs are really out of reach, and considering that have 2 games against the Wings, 2 against TB, and then 1 each against the flyers, sens and caps (also Candiens but i don't think they are within reach either), we are going to need them to win anyway. Just winning those 7 gets them to 92 points.

We are not exactly sitting easy yet either. Columbus, Philly, and Detroit all have a game in hand on us. I'm still worried about catching them.

We can't control that. But we are sitting prettier than we've been in a long long time.

 

The blue jackets game in hand is this Thursday vs San Jose when we're idle. No easy task

Actually the Columbus game in hand is the game that was postponed against Dallas on Monday.  Regardless of when that game is made up, Dallas is fighting for their playoff lives too and that game is in the Lone Star state.

Why are we worrying about Toronto? Unless Tampa Bay goes on a tear, Toronto and Montreal have the 2/3 Atlantic spots locked up; no chance to compete with them.

 

Edit: Eh, I take that back. Any of Toronto, Tampa, or Montreal collapsing helps us.

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.

Games in hand are meaningless right now.  Wait until there's 4 or 5 games left before worrying about games in hand.

Toronto is not out of reach.  2 spots are locked down right now.  There are 6 spots up for grabs.  4 of those 6 are ones we can grab.  Toronto and Montreal are not locked into their playoff seedings by any stretch.  Tampa and Detroit can still catch them, and if that happens, Montreal and Toronto are back in the WC mix.

 

Why are we worrying about Toronto? Unless Tampa Bay goes on a tear, Toronto and Montreal have the 2/3 Atlantic spots locked up; no chance to compete with them.

This.

It's only 3 games, but I knew Ruutu was always a perfect player for our system.  And right now, it's showing.

I would have been a little better if Detroit had beaten Columbus in regulation rather than the other way around, but otherwise, yeah pretty much.

 

On top of what has already happened, as of this writing San Jose leads Toronto 4-1 after two periods.

Toronto can still be caught because they're awful.  A Bernier injury or some bad shooting luck and they will be absolutely in the toilet.

Oof the flyers schedule these next three weeks is absolutely brutal:

Pens x 2
Hawks
Stars
Blues x 2
Kings
Rangers
Leafs
Bruins x 2
Blue jackets

That's 12 straight games against teams currently in playoff positions.

Didn't really see Carolina beating the Rangers in any possible way. NY's super vulnerable. I think Flyers look as more of a lock to grab that second place down the stretch, the way they've been playing. NY might be coming down to earth after what was one of their best months in years through January and February. They don't really look that good at all.

 

Edit: Totally did not realize their remaining schedule was that brutal. Wow, that's about as tough as it gets, not one softie game outside of the Leafs, who can still get lucky on any given night despite being outplayed.

the thing with advanced stats and toronto compared to us is that, leave 10 good scoring chances to Van riemsdyk or Kessel and they'll put 6-7 in... then put the same chances for NJ and they'll net 2-3 lol

 

again shot quality and skills/precision from the shooter is not taken in considerations with stats and it makes a huge difference, i mean a tap in goal with both feet in the crease is a shot so is a wrister from the red line. Yet on paper its the same damn thing

One thing that bodes well for us. A lot of teams we are tied with/slightly ahead or behind, we have more ROW. NJ sits at 29:

 

Toronto-26

Detroit-25

Ottawa-25

Washington-22

TB-28
