Beating NJ is going to be the easy half of this day. Tonight is going to suck. Carolina is just not playing to lose at all.

We all know the Canes are gonna win.. Tampa has nothing to play for going into the playoffs... no reason to go all out and risk injury..

They shut out the defending champs last Sunday. I'm not ruling it out.

So no powerplays for either team today.. Whats the chance the Zebras are out in full force tonight in the Canes favor?

We can expect an Auger/Chris Lee combo for the 1-2 screw-the-Lightning-via-penalties, punch.

^See. Nothing to worry about.


Congrats Rangers.

Selanne just dropped the gloves with Richardson. And Clifford got manhandled by Brookbank.

So a pleasant **** you to all the Debbies and Piles fans who constantly trolled our posts on the main boards and decided to drop in over here as well, saying how we wouldn't make the playoffs just like their teams.

Feels so good, us being in and them being out.

woah! Selanne with the fight! at the age of 40

Also, Calgary got the OTL today ending with 94 points
that means one better draft position for us. drafting 13th instead of 14th i think. too lazy to count regulation vs SO wins.

Don't the non-playoff teams draft FIRST, then the teams that make the playoffs go in order of lowest points.

So, say the Rangers do lose to the Caps in round 1, they will get the 15th pick: the 14 teams that did not make it will draft before them and they have the lowest point total of any team that did make it, so it'll be the 15th overall pick at this point. Not sure how it works for the 2nd round, but I know if you make the Conference Finals, you draft in the last 4 picks no matter of season point total.

That Clifford vs. Brookbank fight was incredible. I'm such a huge fan of Clifford, I praised LA when they drafted him. What a smart pick. He got his **** rocked there.

Some props to Brookbank there. He stunned Clifford and opened him up good. But as soon as he saw the guy was hurt he stopped throwing punches. Classy move, even though Cliff kept going of course that was a little save face. Big win for Brookbank.

That is how it works. The playoff teams get the last 16 picks of the first round. Conference finalists get the last four picks, with Cup finalists getting the last two and the champ getting pick 30. Making it to the second round does not affect your pick.

Detroit @ Chicago should be interesting.

If the Hawks lose in regulation and Dallas win their game, CHI gets 9th.

"I'm happy for Torts. He's done a lot for my career," Lightning forward Martin St. Louis said. "If we could have helped him, great. We played the game, though. It's not like we were working extra hard for Torts."
