I'm expecting us to get on a bit of a roll here now and go into the playoffs firing on all cylinders. Anything can happen after that.
Problem with that is that all the teams we're chasing right now all have a game in hand (minny, l.a., van, sj), so at least 2 of them will probably win their game or get at least 1 point, which puts us further behind, not to mention the tie-breaker...we have the lowest wins in reg time of all the teams in the hunt, which means we have to get into 8th outright, cant have a tie-breaker.

People are speculating on here that it will take low 50s in points to make it and we have 40 points up for grabs from here on out, which means we have to get probably somewhere around 27-30 points in 20 games and probably will still need help because of the conference schedule to make it...dont get me wrong, i love that they are showing some gumption lately, but realistically, its still a long shot IMO.
