Just thought I would post some stats to put things in perspective. To get to 91 points and have a chance at PO Habs need to go something like 27-14-5 or 66% WP or 13 games over .500 the rest of the way. Doable? - Yes. Probable? - No. Long losing sticks in this NHL are unforgivable.

Main difference though is that Ottawa has hot PP and very young and talented team, Calgary has veteran team that can compete and they can unload some star players for king's ransom. And Toronto is just good team that has string of tough games against good opponents and still finished it 4-4-2 (.500). Leafs actually overcome a lot of injuries this season so far (Reimer, Armstrong, Kadri, Connolly, McArthur. Grabobski, Komisarek, Brown, Lombardi, more than Habs did for sure, AINEC). Leafs were only noticeably outplayed by Boston, but then who was not?
