Very possible, but I would consider the following:

- We almost certainly need to win the last game to have a chance at the division.

- If the Leafs stay in 5th and us in 4th (if Petey can't pull out a win), Price would be going into the series reeling from the last loss. Not sure if that's good for him or the confidence of the team. He has to redeem himself against the leafs whether we're playing them or not in the first round.

- I don't think rest is an issue for him. Hasn't been too brutal of a schedule for him with Budaj helping out.

- Playing two solid games is far more reassuring than one. Look what happened after Tampa. He needs two wins going into the playoffs IMO. I totally trust Budaj to beat the Leafs, but for Carey's confidence, might be a good thing to play them. If he blows it, well we're screwed either way unless he somehow recovers two days later and for the rest of that series.
