Since the poll was worded "can [they]" I voted yes. We absolutely can.
8 points behind, 2 games in hand. If we win the two in hand, we're 4 behind with 10 games to play (I know scheduling doesn't work out exactly like that...but). We have one game left against them...which if we won outright would mean we are down 2 with 9 games left...but with tie breakers, we would need +3 points in 9 games to overtake. Hypothetically, if we went 6-3-0 and they went 4-4-1 in those 9, and we would overtake. With that example, we would have to go 9-3-0 and the Blues would have to go 4-5-1 in the total remaining games.
It's certainly possible...but the truth is that we don't control our own destiny, and we need to be red hot while we need them to cool down.
I don't think it will happen, though.
