Reality is they need ATLEAST a pt. if they only get 1 Canes have to lose in regulation. TB is a division rival so they will go hard.

Not good that the team needs help from Tampa to get into the playoffs.

WELL, this team does the opposite of what we think a lot.

I predict one of our 6-0, 7-0 type wins.

Then Ward will stop 78 shots & Car will win 1-0

You root for the win. Their draft position is going to be middling no matter what.

Catch 22 game . 82 days /nights of my life gone again . Was a real roller coaster and for the most part an over achieving hard working time that is too predictable , too unskilled . A win for dignity 's sake is in order . Stranger things have happened but I can't see Carolina losing even if we beat the Devils . If anything this game means more to the Devils than us in a strange way . The air was taken out if this team a week ago . The Boston game was equally a Boston collapse as it was effort on our part .
Carolina is peaking atvthe right time . Beside Staal ( an elite player ) Cole a proven clutch performer and an excellent deadline acquisition in Reuniting Stillman with them .
Skinner has the looks of perennial all-star .
Oh well here's to dignity in winning / losing out on a tie breaker , and a good of season

Seems weird to look at the standings and see the Rangers with 3 more wins than Carolina and still looking up at them. With a win today, Rangers will have 44 wins on the season, 7th most in team history and likely, no playoffs. They will also become the 2nd team in the last 12 years (didn't go back further) to miss the playoffs with 44 wins or more. Colorado missed the playoffs by one loser point in 06-07.

The rules are the rules, just sayin.

If they miss, I think they would pick at 12. If they make it, they'll pick at 13, right? Not a big difference.

That would be pretty fitting if his only goal of the season gets us in the playoffs.

That Atlanta game was the difference between about a 75% chance to make the playoffs and a 25% chance. We're sadly screwed and only a miracle can get us in.

I can't really say this team deserves a playoff spot either. One elite goalie, that's all the anchor players we have. That's at least two too few from a real competitive team. Then you get these incredible changes in day to day performances.

Yeah but a lot of those wins are shoot out wins. Those aren't really wins; I'm actually glad the NHL eliminated them for the tiebreaker.

I would rather them get rid of the shootout but at least this tie breaker change is a step in the right direction.

I just can't understand how it is be possible to give up the last place in the playoffs. I get so pissed off by seeing so uninspired players, crushed by Atlanta, perhaps the most important match of the Year.

Their luxury after locking up a spot early.

This team doesn't deserve a playoff spot after the eggs they laid against the Isles and Thrashers.
