The only way Montreal faces anyone but Ottawa is if Philly wins and Boston loses combined with a Montreal win in which case Montreal would play Boston.

Montreal Boston or Ottawa in the first round! Most likely scenario is we play Ottawa!
If Boston wins, Philadelphia wins and we lose we face Boston right?

Montreal loss + Boston Loss + Philly Loss =

Montreal v.s Boston

or

Montreal loss + Boston win + Philly Win =

Montreal v.s Philly

I'm not sure if this is right?

If you go by this then we *technically* have the best shot at playing Boston.
fixed no?

So it's Boston or Ottawa... as far as I undertand there is zero chance of playing Philly
- We win, Pens win, Boston win = Ottawa
- We win, Pens win, Boston loose = Boston
- We lose, Pens lose, Boston win = Philly
- We lose, Pens lose, Boston loose = Boston

Montreal has a chance to draw Philly according to the scenario if we drop the game against TOR,the Pens lose either in OT or SO but still gets the point and Boston wins vs BUF.

That's the second time the 8th team clinches while the 9th place Capitals are still alive. It happened on a year we clinched really late... maybe 2002?

I don't care who we play. As for Boston and Philadelphia, what i meant is what would they choose as a lesser evil.

No, you forgot the scenario where we lose and Pittsburgh lose and Boston wins, then we face Philly.

Crosby would have a serious headache by the end of that series if the past two games between the two are any indication.

Maybe because they are the hottest team in the east and have the east's best player?

So basically, we win tomorrow and Boston WINS tomorrow = it's impossible for us to face Philadelphia and we face Ottawa.

That would give after tomorrow:

Boston 6th 96 PTS
Ottawa 7th 94 PTS
Philadelphia 8th 93 PTS

If Philly wins Sunday, they move up to 7th but Pittsburgh falls to 2nd and we clinch 1st in the conference and Ottawa finishes 8th. And obviously, Philly loses (even if its in OT) on Sunday, Pittsburgh finishes 1st, we finish 2nd, Ottawa 7th and Philly 8th.

As far as I can tell, we play Boston if they lose to Buffalo. We play Ottawa if Boston wins.

This weirdly works no matter where we finish and whether or not Philadelphia wins or loses, save if we lose and Philly and Boston win, then we do play Philly (as another poster corrected).

Yup. Once Ottawa was 1st. Then 2nd is what they flirted with. Then 4th. Then with about a week or two left, they settled for 5th. Then with a week to go, 6th became their resting spot. Now, with 2 days left and no games for them, they can go from 5th to 8th within a week. Buncha losers, eh?

Hottest team in the East. They are in playoff mode already and will get a head start with the intensity level in the first round. They are playing so great right now and everyone is pulling in the same direction and they have a goalie now. I really wouldnt want to face this team in the first round.

Which is Washington. Which was my point. Give this team some respect.

I doubt Boston would rather face us than Washington.

It doesn't matter who we play. Anyone who doesn't win the cup is a loser. It doesn't matter if we have to play Detroit (I know its not technically possible) in the first round...you have to beat everyone to drink from Lord Stanley's Cup. So bring on Ottawa...Bring on Boston..whoever...It doesn't matter.

Let's ****ing ROCK them all!

The Montreal Canadiens will dispatch their first round opponent in 5 games or less.

Exactly. This is the end of the current Ottawa Era (Redden, Alfredson). They need wholesale changes and Heatley and Spezza need to learn how to play defense.
