HUGE game Sat.
Don't look now, but those of you who considered the division in the bank just two nights ago had better think again. After tonite's choke job against Dallas, and after NJ's win over the hapless Hawks, the Devils stand just 6 pts back, and both NJ and Philly have 36 wins.
IF the Flyers lose in regulation on Sat., the Devils will:
- be only 4 pts back WITH two games in hand;
- have more wins than the Flyers (first tiebreak); AND
- have won the season series with Philly (3-2-1) (second tiebreak).
All in all, I'd say Sat is a must win, or all bets are off.
First of all, I don't know of anyone who felt the division was wrapped up two nights ago.
Secondly, I wouldn't consider tonights game to have been a choke job, since the only reason they were even in the game was Esche's goaltending. They were really outplayed quite badly.
