Doesn't a row help them with tie breakers?

ROWs are first tiebreak. That game going to shootout means NYI could not match Pens current ROW total (even though Pens own head to head already, which is 2nd tiebreak), and WAS max ROW total would be Pens current, and Pens own the head to head. Reduces the clinch number over those teams by not needing the +1.

Canes are saying wait until next year at this point. As soon as Ward went down, their season was done.

Flyers refuse to give up and they jsut might be able to claw their way in. The East is looking pretty much like The Least lately.

The Flyers also refused to get started until game 34

What was that, Boyes?

What was that, Capuano, sending out Boyes?

Washington in the 3rd spot now.

That's also disgusting.

Isles lose. Philthy 2 points out.

10th to 3rd just like that. Show up the last 15 games or so and there's your season. Talk about conserving energy.

Isles getting a point is better than nothing.

Pens should roll over Philly with their roster, they have 2 lines of crap. With that said give me isles or jets in rd 1

You can move the Thrashers, but the suckitude still lives on. They have a decent roster and have had decent coaches now and right before the move, but they just can't get over the hump. They brought in quality, productive players with character like Andrew Ladd, went out and got Buff and Wheeler, have Enstrom on the blueline, Kane, etc...but no. They always still take the gas towards the end. Their blueline is still a mess and Pavelec still runs too hot/cold.

Oh yeah, they also have Olie Jokinen, which might explain it all. He totally sucks and drains the life out of a team.

Gaborik scored his first goal as a Jacket. Calvert makes it 3-1

It's hilarious to me that Washington can suck so badly for the majority of the season, barely be above .500 and yet are now sitting in the third spot.

Blues take a 3rd period lead on the Hawks. Kings up early 2-0 on the Wild. And Columbus wins again.

Shortened Season + SouthEast Division imploding = Caps' chance to maybe make the playoffs and then lose as usual.

Blues blow lead late, take Hawks to shootout. Hawks 9-3 in OT (incl 5-3 in shootout) going in to tonight.

entertaining shootout. Shooters in rounds 1, 2, and 4 all scored. Goalies huge in rounds 3 and 5. Shattenkirk gets the deciding goal in round 6.

I don't know about that. This could be one of those years where an 8 seed comes in, clicking on all cylinders and makes a run...Washington could be that team at #3.
