Phoenix @ Edmonton (2PM MST) would be nice if Phoenix stopped winning
Chicago @ Los Angeles (6PM MST) will be on NHLN, we need LAK to LOSE
Philadelphia @ Calgary (8PM MST) will be on CBC, we need CAL to LOSE
LA up 4-0 on Chicago. Can't these teams just lose to the teams they're supposed to?
I would be more disapointed if they shoot themselves in the foot over the remainding games. If they play like I know they can and dont make it, I'd be upset but at least they gave it their all. If the decide to not play with heart however and go on losing streak I'm gonna be pissed.
it feels super good to even have to be paying attention to whats going on this late in the season after last year...i honestly dont know how the islanders fan can take being out of it year after year. my buddy is an oilers fan and hes starting to feel the same way.
Not sure if it was mentioned here, but the Avs likely wouldn't have the tie breaker if they are tied for 8th at the end of the season. The NHL changed their format to not include SO wins in the number of wins for the first tie breaker. They will likely have less Reg/OT wins than whichever team they're tied with.
The Avs are 2nd in the league with 7 SO wins. Minny has 6. Dallas and LA have 4. Calgary and Anaheim have 3.
LA wins and CAL gets a point in OT.
Seriously, the last week or so every result of our opponents was against us. ( 3 point games between our opponents and wins against superior opponents and so on).
Seems like someone up there does not want us to make it.
But we will hopefully not go down without a fight
Maybe there would be one positive if we don't make it though ( I absolutely want to make it!)
If we make it, wouldnt that mean Sacco back for another year or two?
Just throwing that thought out there....
A lot of these comes down to "do you believe in streaks?". Avs can easily catch up Coyotes, Blackhawks, Sharks and Kings, it just requires from each of those four about a five game losing streak, while Avs similarly have a five game winning streak.
