Who do we root for tonight? Buffalo or Winnipeg?

Too bad one of them has to win. Probably Buffalo, as they're not a division rival.

I would think we cheer for Buffalo. While that means Buffalo moves over us by 2 points it keeps Peg from moving 4 up on us.
No OT is a must.

Buffalo. If they win we stay 2 points out of 8th(as long as it doesn't go to OT) then if we win tomorrow we will tie for 8th and get in on the tie-breaker

Buffalo. If the Bolts win tomorrow we're equal in points again. And with how badly they've played against Winnipeg this season, I don't want them leading the division.

A large meteorite hitting the building would be my choice. Reducing the number number of electrocuted sheep fans is a bonus.

This...or just no OT. Hopefully we pull out another win tomorrow.

I really really hope both us and the Panthers make it in. I want to see HF burst into flames, TSN to **** themselves, etc.

This.


Tomorrow's games are going to have a much bigger impact, and not just because Tampa is playing.

Probably want to hope for:

Carolina > Washington
Boston > Toronto

Three potential playoff spots, #3, #7, #8, are all up for grabs. Ottawa has an easy looking schedule after our game on Tuesday but hasn't playing well lately with goaltender injuries, I could see them dropping into the mix of Winnipeg, Florida, Washington, Tampa Bay, and Buffalo. These last couple of weeks are going to be very exciting.

Actually I am glad Jets won since we have two games in hand on them and the Sabres were red hot.

9 of Jets final 15 games are on the road and while they are really good at home they suck at road, could be worth remembering.

Not to be a party pooper but 6 of our last 8 are on the road and we are hardly on fire on the road. But let us hope that turns around with this new attitude we seem to have.

It's very important to come out of the upcoming homestand in the top 8 and with a bit of a lead. If they're still on the outside looking in after the homestand, it's not gonna happen.

True but we still have more home games than them.

This is the only organization in the world, in Tampa, in the U.S., that cheers when Winnipeg loses.

They don't need to make the playoffs. "They don't have to sell hope here"

Thank you.

It was a nice dream while it lasted, but they pretty much have to win every game now. Bruins and the Blues coming up. 5 road games to finish up the season. Hope melting.

If you click on the team it will show you who to root for. Bolts chances of making the playoffs 5%
