Both the Habs and the Bruins have to be careful not have long losing streaks. They're both perilously close to the cutoff line for finishing in the playoffs. Several outsides have gained on them, including the Rangers, Thrashers, and Lghtning. On the other hand, the Islanders, Maple Leafs, Panthers, Sabres, Devils, Senators, and Hurricanes have a long (but not impossible) climb to eighth place. The Habs could lose ground on their seven-game road trip. I think Max Pacioretty's arrival couldn't have been more timely. It's fortunate the Habs have two days off after their spate of back-to-back games this past week,

It's interesting that the Bruins haven't been able to win many games behind Uukka Tuuka Raskolnikov. They were riding on his last season and their fans were impatient to trade Thomas. If Chiareli had bone so the Bruins would probably bes nestled among the Sanatorsa and Hurricanes.
