Gotta say the bruins effort is really not impressive...to have a 4-0 lead and then take your foot of the gas and let the devils get to within a goal is amateur hour. They only mustered 18 shots on net. Their effort on that major PP was horrific. I don't think they even registered a shot on it. They'll be tired from playing tonight...IMO ripe for the picking tomorrow.
Toronto isn't that good a team. They had a dreadful time in the dzone coverage. Leaving guys open in the slot, double teaming a single ranger behind the net. They never paid for it, but they weren't impressive in the slightest. Reimer was also not great, he left many rebounds.
For the Jets to tie us, they need to get 10 out of a possible 14...not impossible but not likely.
It's better than that because if the Caps fall a bit (also 44 pts now) and the Jets pass us it wouldn't matter as the Jets would take the 3rd seed.
Our chances of making the playoffs are strong, but we must get at least the 7th seed to have a shot at the second round. Stranger things have happened (like 20 years ago) but even with their injuries the Pens are scary deep.
