Avs over Ducks
Stars over Wild (altho if we're gonna' miss one let's have it be this one)
BJs over Kings
Oilers over Dead Things (we'll even take this one in OT if the hockey gods insist on a 3pointer somewhere)
I go for Wild over Stars. Even though a Wild win leapfrogs us, we'll have the game in hand to jump back over them. We want to keep as many teams as possible close to us. You have to assume we need to keep winning to stay in it. If we do that, we'll pass the Wild in the process. Better for them to help keep the Stars in spitting distance.
Was at the Caps game and you would have thought that someone decided to give the Hawks a chance to tie it up in the last two minutes for the TV game. We came so close to having the Caps win in regulation. At least they won the game. It was a very entertaining game though.
