Do you think Price will reach 40 wins this season ?

He would need to win 9 more games with 16 left. I am fairly sure he will not play all of them. There is a late back-to-back with Atlanta and Carolina. Safe to assume he misses one of those (probably ATL).
The only other back-to-back involves Tampa and the NYR next week. I'm not sure you really want him to sit one of those out, but i think he may (the Rangers game maybe?)
So unless our playoff positions is set in stone by the time we play Ottawa and Toronto to end the regular season you probably will see him play 14 games.
so he'd need to go 9-5.
WE play the Bruins 2 more times, Blackhawks, and Devils (always tough for us). that's 4 games that could very well end up as L's.
Then there are a bunch of games versus eastern playoff (or bubble) teams. (Pittsburgh, Washington (x2), Rangers, Carolina, Buffalo, Tampa, Toronto) that could go either way.
I'm leaning towards no... more like 37-38 wins. But I don't think it's impossible by any means. Especially if they stay hot.
I will say, if they beat the Bruins tonight, I think his chances are much greater than the 1 extra win it gives.

the GOOD news is brodeur was 25 when he hit 100 wins
Yeah... doesn't matter much, despite it would be nice to have the record.
What does matter is that the kid is clearly able to be a franchise goalie for many years, which to me is STILL the #1 piece to have to win a cup.
