Eller with his size, speed and skill will be vital to this team's aspirations in the post season. He is a damn good player.

Should we have a GDT for tomorrow's game (because it will decide where we finish)?

IMpressive game guys.

So you have Ottawa or Toronto. Either way, and emotional first round series.

I have a feeling Boston loses tomorrow and you have the Sens.

Cheers, and see you in the second round!

Note that the "turning back" would have happened not because the army wasn't committed, but because the Cuban Governor would have recalled Cortes. Spanish Colonial politics were delicate, I believe.

Alright, so let's see what we have here now:

If Ottawa loses to Boston in regulation
#1 PIT vs #8 OTT
#2 BOS vs #7 NYI
#3 WAS vs #6 NYR
#4 MTL vs #5 TOR

If Ottawa loses to Boston in OT/SO
#1 PIT vs #8 NYI
#2 BOS vs #7 OTT
#3 WAS vs #6 NYR
#4 MTL vs #5 TOR

If Boston loses to Ottawa in any way
#1 PIT vs #8 NYI
#2 MTL vs #7 OTT
#3 WAS vs #6 NYR
#4 BOS vs #5 TOR

I'll be rooting for the Sens tomorrow.

Prust - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Bourque
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
Moen - Halpern - White

Ryder in the pressbox for the playoffs once again.

They are the invading plunderers. They arrive by boat on the NHL island and as they do, they burn their boats. They have come to fight and conquer and retreat is not an option.

Read this on a Leafs article somewhere.

Gallagher may not win the Calder but his game is way more that just getting points. Great first season from both him and Galchenyuk..
