Big night last night, but even bigger one tonight with the Isles not even in action.
We crept up 6.7% in our SCS playoff odds last night with a win in accordance with a TOR win. Now 3 points behind them with 0 games in hand and 2 points behind BOston with 1 game in hand.
Tonight we have TB vs Boston, we need to be pulling for TB hard. A regulation win for them they'll still be 1 point behind us with us having a game in hand and we will gain a 2nd game in hand over Boston while remaining 2 points out. Leafs play the Devils. Gam ehtye should win but Devils coming off an OT win over the Rags and LEafs coming off a back to back and big win last night. Prime for a letdown.
Independently, a TB regulation win brings our chances up 5.6% to 41.3% and a Toronto regulation loss bring us up 5.1% to 40.8%. If both happen, we wibe looking at ~50% most likely heading into our big weekend where we face Pit and Boston, so tonight is HUGE.
Sidenote, if Isles play Berube Friday they are signaling to fans and other teams, etc. that personal agendas are more important than winning. Greiss needs to be in net Staurday vs. Boston, so it needs to be Halak tomorrow in Pit. No excuses
