I'll take credit for this win. I'm heading back to college tomorrow, so my friend came by to say goodbye for now. This was when it was 2-0. I didn't know he was coming, and I thought it'd be quick, so I went out in snow/ice/20* weather in just pajama pants, a t-shirt, and no socks or shoes to say goodbye. Needless to say I froze my ass off. As I was about to open my glass door to get in, I saw inside that we scored to make it 2-1. Well, when we pulled Price, I went back outside, same clothes, just as freezing, and we scored.
The only way for that to happen is if the Bruins lose their next game and we win our next game. Then and only then will we be back to 3rd.
IMO the Habs are better than the Bruins, so it should happen over the course of the last half of the season despite the Bs having a significant head start (the games in hand are huge). Of course, the Bs have been luckier than the Habs lately, so that will have to correct itself for the Habs to finish in third.
