Its starting to look like the bruins and habs will battle for 2nd and 4th (barring a big collapse), while the isles, sens, and leafs all have a legitimate shot at 5th.

So which match-up gives the habs the best chance to advance, based on what you've seen this season?

Either way, its shaping up to be a dramatic stretch drive with so many possibilities.
The Leafs have a fair shot at 4th (and home ice advantage in the first round) if the Habs or Bruins slip. The Habs' win against TB combined with the Leafs' loss to the Isles added a touch of comfort. Now if only the Bruins would oblige by losing their GIH! If the Habs and Bruins tie in points the Habs have the potential tiebreaker by their having won the season's series.
