Let's look at the positives.

I know we're all unhappy about tanking down the stretch and losing the division title. That being said there are a couple of things that I think work to our advantage. First of all, we're no longer favored to win anything. Dropping all the way down to #6 drops us off the radar a bit. Maybe being seen as an underdog will benefit them. Secondly, since we no longer have home ice in the first round we are not expected to win game 1. This takes a huge amount of pressure off a team that has just lost 5 in a row. And, should they find a way to get a win in Jersey on Saturday that immediately changes the complexion of the series.
