Either way, we host them in the first round. Unlikely, but would be a cool situation.
In reality, now that Boston will be playing at least one if not two games following that Saturday night, there would be no way of knowing at the time that this was playing out, only in retrospect.
I think the Bruins are strong enough to weather the back to back situation they MAY be put in, but would be awesome to get 2nd and play the isles. It seems like this is possible IF we improve back to our former selves and just go win city from now on. Boston won't drop 3 games, but they might drop one of Ottawa/Pitt with room for an unlucky performance against a weaker team. They have two games on us now, so if they get 8 pts (2 reg loss) and we get 8 pts (winning all), we'd have the edge in points. I think that's our only chance. Leafs will bounce back, they're not the leafs of old. They'll be 5th, book it. Isles might overtake Ottawa though.
