The boys are on a role! From Sportsnet.ca:
Edmonton has been one of the NHL's best teams down the stretch and now has points in 16 consecutive games.
3 more games to go!
No kidding! I saw last night that they were 7-0-0-3 (17pts) in their last 10 games! Nothing like turning it on at the end of the year to head into the playoffs at full steam. At this rate, they're gonna keep up the rep of being first round giant-killers...
Even better, if the playoffs started today, they'd match up against Detroit. I'm a big fan of the beloved Red Wings (they filled in the void after the North Stars left), but they've got a notorious reputation for LOSING to 8 seeds.
the Wild were officially mathematically eliminated over the weekend. So, too, did the season end for the Gophers Men's Hockey teams as they lost in the NCAA tourney... at least our Lady Gophers held up the Sate of Hockey's reputation with a NCAA Womens Hockey championship!
