Damn, I was just looking at wins for the tie break but its regulation and overtime wins only from what you are saying, shoot out wins not included. Toronto has to be able to beat TB as TB is playing back to back after we thrashed them last night. But the Leafs are so lousy, who knows.
I just want to see the Habs play their hardest, and play with heart! I don't want to see this great team ever give up.
They've already defeated the Lightning and their two remaining games are against the Hurricanes and the Maple Leafs, so it's quite possible for them to win both. The Leafs in particular are in the same boat as the Habs, eliminated from the playoffs with nothing to look forward to but (in the eyes of Burke) to secure the best possible position in the upcoming draft.
