It's not over yet, though the situation certainly appears dismal for the Habs. The Canes won tonight to take over sole possession of 8th place putting them 3 points ahead of the Habs having played an equal number of games. I'm hoping the Rangers beat the Canes this Sunday, and that the Rangers get beat by the Pens tomorrow night. Also, the Leafs are playing Ottawa tomorrow night so the opportunity is there for the Habs to keep pace if they can beat the Blues. Too many ifs for my liking , but stranger things have happened.
