Really would have liked to have seen Martinek on D instead of Carkner last night, but, it is what it is.....the boys will hopefully play hard tonight and be up for a tough first round opponent (really any of the top 3 are gonna be a really challenge.)
if Philly showed up playing like Philly, we risk Martinek in the playoffs when we need him. We'd better use him, anyways. His offense is the best I've seen from him in his career and his D is still cerebral and steady.
If Pitt plays tough, we have to match.
It is what it is.
*of course we could still grab sixth seed if NYR loses, Ottawa gets one of our points and NYI has destiny on its side.
