Greeeaaaatt...  Pens are gonna drag themselves from the basement just enough to lose the #1 draftpick...  Buncha DB's.

Anyway, I'm pulling for the Flyers now I think.  Deserving team.  Rivalry any other time, but I can dig them right now.

The boys are on a role!  :o  From Sportsnet.ca:

Edmonton has been one of the NHL's best teams down the stretch and now has points in 16 consecutive games.  8)

3 more games to go!  ;D

I was happy Saturday because the Flyers were playing on tv, which doesn't happen all that often in the Boston area.  I figured they're playing the Rangers, it will be an easy win and they'll expand there lead on the Devils and possibly catch TB for first place overall.  I figured I'd turn the radio on, mute the game and enjoy while organizing my comics for my upcoming move.  Well, that didn't last long.  Within a period and a half, they were down 3-0 and I got pissed and turn it off.

It looks like their problems in past playoffs, goaltending, is going to bite them in the ass again this year.  >:(

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.

ps.
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!

Preds picked up a huge win tonight, and coupled with the Oilers loss, I'm one happy camper right now (sorry my north of the border friends). I've got great tickets to Saturday's home season finale against the Blues, and am really glad I splurged for good seats not knowing what a huge game this would turn out to be. C'mon playoffs!

But only one game left Dale.  They're going to need some luck.  That Blues loss might come back to be a very, very bad nightmare.  

My pool guys seem to have gone on holidays for the last week :'(

They broke that bloody Dallas jinx that haunted them since 1996 & I'm happy with that & Calgary, first playoff berth since 96. Brew must be crapping his pants!  ;D

These next few games will tell the story.  :-\

Oilers have 1 game left while the Preds and Blues both have 2 right?  With 2 points up on the Preds...Should be an exciting last few games.  The suck ass thing, the Wild hold on to half of their third period leads and they are right there too >:(

The Preds & Blues have 3 games left to our 1.

Preds:
Apr 1: Predators & Blackhawks.
Apr 3: Blues & Predators.
Apr 4: Predators & Avalanche.

Blues:
Apr 1: Red Wings & Blues.
Apr 3: Blues & Predators.
Apr 4: Blues & Wild.

From our Edmonton Journal: Playoff picture remains murky.

Now that the Oilers have finally found a way to beat Dallas and climb to 89 points, what's their playoff picture look like? Well, it's still murky.

- Nashville (87 points) needs only four points in their final three games against the Blackhawks tonight,

St. Louis Saturday afternoon and Colorado Sunday afternoon to confirm their first playoff appearance in their sixth NHL season. If they get two wins, the Predators are in and the Oilers are out. Even if Nashville only gets one win and two ties, while the Oilers add another win Saturday, the Predators would get in on the basis of a better head-to-head season series.

To make the Oilers game in Vancouver meaningful Saturday night, Nashville cannot earn more than three points against Chicago and

St. Louis. Even with Nashville at 90 points, the Oilers can still get in the post-season if they beat the Canucks.

- St. Louis (89 points) needs only one win in their last three games with Detroit, Nashville and Minnesota to guarantee their post-season spot. If the Blues and Oilers tie in points, the Blues get in because they have more total wins.

Shes a nail biter & I'm not placing any bets!
