We made the playoffs because...

Trying to have a little fun while we wait 3 days. 

I'll start with the obvious (but get silly too if you want.)

...because Taylor Hall had an MVP worthy season.

Because Ray Shero is one savvy motherfvcker and isn't afraid to make tough decisions when required.

Keith Kinkaid played the best hockey of his life at the exact time we needed it

...because of Drew Stafford. 

February 13, Drew Stafford scored in the shootout to pick up the extra point. Without that goal, we have one less point and we lose the tiebreaker to Florida and we're on the golf course right now.

Oh man this is a fun way to go about this.

I'm going to go with Eddie Lack.

On February 17th, Lack played the best game of his life and led the Devils past the Lightning by making 48 saves on 51 shots.  Without those two points.. etc. etc.

So fun...

...without Jimmy Hayes and his two game winning goals.

Because the Devils could NOT catch a break from the league replay office. :rolleyes:  Though it did seem to make them tougher.

Ha, I was in the building for that one!

we made the playoffs because we went 4-2 on the road-trip from hell. Anything short of 8 points on that trip and the Devils would have been on the airplane home reading about how they were toast. Especially if they had gone 1-5 or something like that; a totally possible and not even embarrassing result considering the competition on that trip. That road trip, starting in Nashville, is the reason we get to watch playoff hockey.

I'll go with the kids: because Nico loves to Hockey (and score 52 points)... because a 2016 6th round pick made the team and by some miracle scored 35 points... and because Butcher somehow wasn't vesey'd by the NYR (or anyone else) and got 44 pts!  :cheers:  Can't top the Coleman pickle juice comment so I'll leave it at that!

Coach hynes...made the tough call of sticking with kk after cory was back.  That imo was the biggest and best decision he's made this year.

Is 1-2-1 really “falling apart”?

Still amazing that an 0-2-1 winless streak was enough to kill them....even with that, they went 25-8-2. 

But like we've noted, when you start 19-22-6 and pretty much suck for 57% of your season, it's hard to make a real argument for why you deserve a playoff berth at the expense of others.  Next time Panthers, don't wait until the 48-game mark to start making your move.
