Hahahahaha my thoughts exactly, I picked TO BOS because they are going to make it happen anyways. Bank on it.
Then they are not that good then. If they are picking opponents that means that they are not confident in their abilities. Toronto is better than NYI anyway, just look at the regulation/OT wins category. If they still think that they are a contender for the Cup, they should aim to finish as high as possible. If they are a championship team, they will strive to win the division. Quite frankly, if they are planning on losing this game tonight then we want them in the first round. That means that they are fragile and beatable. Suddenly NYI is better than Toronto? BS.
If Boston wins in regulation, the Bruins face the New York Islanders in the first round while Ottawa meets the Pittsburgh Penguins. Montreal Canadiens takes on the Toronto Maple Leafs in the other undetermined matchup in the Eastern Conference.
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
Most Habs fans are also cheering for the bruins to win. They feel confident that they can beat us now based on last nights performance. So pretty much, everyone other than sens fans are cheering for the bruins tonight.
