I mean you can argue that the two most recent Superbowl teams were some of the worst in history. 10-6 wildcard and 9-7 miracle. Rangers are first in the East right now and I was simply saying that crazier things have happened. That's all.
Ok, I can live with that. I can only hope that you're right and maybe something crazy will happen.
By no means do I want to play Washington if Backstrom is back.
After missing 37 games and nearly three months with a concussion, Nicklas Backstrom took a big step forward in his recovery on Saturday morning.
The Capitalsí star center has been cleared for full participation in practice with no restrictions and Backstrom was on the ice with a dozen teammates for an optional practice at KCI this morning. This session marks the first time he has taken full part in an on-ice workout with his teammates since Jan. 6 in San Jose.
I wouldn't be surprised if Devils fans were rooting for the Pens to win.
I agree with you though, the players want to win, they aren't going to purposely lose to hurt us. The fans may want them to though
Yeah, if it were the last day of the season or they were absolutely locked into a particular playoff spot I could see their fans rooting for Pitt. But they have 7 games left to play...not the time to be rooting against your team regardless how much you hate the Rangers. And forget about the players thinking about throwing a game to "hurt" the Rangers...that's beyond ridiculous.
