If they win they could go from the fourth last place and pass Annaheim, Islanders, Carolina and Minnesota for the 9th last pick. If I'm reading the standings correctly. Maybe Burke can pitch the season as a huge success then!
The Capitals and Sabres are having a contest to see who can back their way into the last playoff spot. If the Sabres lose back to back games to the Leafs they really should just forfeit the last spot.
reminds of the short course speed skating at the olympics, a couple of olympics ago. The guy wins in the quarters but figures he couldn't place high enough in the semi, so he just hopes falls over and he wins by default
Gold at the Olympics because everyone else fell and your plan was to be last and avoid a tumble if the group went down because it was your only hope. Got to love it when a plan comes together.
Watching the Pittsburgh/Boston game, and saw a close-up of Paul Martin. First thought it was some 18 year old rookie but then saw his name plate. Pretty crazy how you can watch 100+ games a season and only now see a guy who usually plays 20+ minutes a game who's been in the league for 8 years.
Randy Carlyle during the first intermission:
"Ok, we're going to rest the Kessel line for the second and third periods so they are ready to go for the last few games. Scrivens, we need you to become more amidextrous. You'll play wrong handed the rest of the game. And Komisarek, you're having a great game. We'll move you up to the top pairing!"
Sulzer has 4 points in the last 3 games. The real deal, or is he in a Rome-esque streak?
I watched the game Saturday vs the Leafs and I thought he looked pretty bad defensively. But seeing how the Sabres are missing Ehrhoff and Myers and Sulzer had to play big minutes that's not too surprising. Who knows, maybe the trade will work out for both Sulzer and Gragnani.
