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.

Can't believe TSN isn't airing this game. Or Sportsnet Ontario was looking forward to watching it

I hope Boston wins. Ottawa has traditionally struggled against Boston in Boston.

I really want Toronto to play Montreal in the playoffs; not because I think we match up well, but it would be absolutely epic after nine years out of the playoffs. I love games against Montreal!

Some things imporant to know if we are going to watch this game is

Start time 7pm on Snet-E

Bruins chase Northeast crown against Senators

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.

What's more desirable for Boston?

a) Toronto then Pittsburgh
b) Islanders then Washington

Honestly the only thing that scares me in Boston is their high face-off percentage and their low GA, Kadri would be like 25% faceoffs versus them.

Toronto is a young, fast, skilled team that will give an older, slower, tired, beaten up Boston team a run for their money.

Both teams today should be highly motivated to win in order to avoiding playing opponents due to a loss.
Ottawa will only need a point to face Boston but if Ottawa gets the 2 points they face MTL

Doesn't everyone want to see Kessel versus Seguin for 7 games?

Wouldn't that be the best entertainment value?

Phaneuf on Seguin
Chara on Kessel

Playing Montreal as opposed to Pitts or Boston should be huge incentive for Ottawa.

That might also be bad news for Leafs as that forces the Bruins on us as opposed to Montreal.

I think a series with either Bos or Mtl would be close, but even if we beat Bos we'd be pretty banged up physically after it.

So Mtl plz.

If they aren't winning the Cup a better pick comes into play.

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.

Would rather play Montreal.

I don't buy into the hype about Price. Average goaltending will expose Montreal for the regular season team they are.

What pessimism?

People here are cheering for Boston to win...95% of us want Montreal.

We'll beat the Habs. No doubt about it.
