Is there still a chance Washington could grab the division title and Florida could be 8th? If so, that's what I'm rooting for.
NY Rangers over Florida
Ottawa over Boston
Washington over New Jersey
Pittsburgh over Philadelphia
I'll probably root for the Coyotes and the Predators in the western conference.
Yep, we can still dictate who the first round matchups are. Only one that's set in stone is Pens vs Flyers. Ensuring that the Panthers are to play the Rangers would be epic, but with Boosh in net, getting Nodl back in the lineup for the first time in weeks, and getting Welsh in who doesn't know our system isn't leaving me overly optimistic. And still that's all predicated on the Caps actually winning their game, not a given.
I just want Staal to hit 70 at this point, and if it comes on a LaRose goal so that he hits 20 even better.
I wanna see a Blues vs. Bruins or Flyers SCF with the Cup going to St. Louis.
They've been around almost 45 years, made it to the playoffs over and over on shoestring budgets and bouts of poor management, and their fanbase isn't a bunch of frustrated whiny ******* insisting to everyone how they "deserve" it like some others I know.
