Again, I hear what you are saying, but records in the regular season mean absolutely nothing come playoff time. I don't care if we are 0 fer against a given team- when the playoffs start anything can happen.

Last year:
Van finished 16 points ahead of LA- eliminated in 1st round
NYR finished 17 points ahead of Ottawa- had to go 7 to beat them

Just so we are clear and I'm not called overly optimistic- I'm not saying that's going to happen with us- just saying quoting our record against other teams is pointless IF we get in playoffs

Not to mention- if we do finish strong and get in, our playoff team will not be the same team we were in the first half of this season when we couldn't beat anyone
