I'm not negative or anything, and the Habs have been playing fantastic since the break, but should we be a bit worried? It would suck so bad to have the Habs play this well and come up short by a point or 2.

Anyways, GO HABS GO! Lets finish 7th or 6th

Don't worry...we are almost in the playoff. Atlanta would need to win almost all their games if they want to finish in front of us, or Tampa...

We shouldn't be worried at all because we are a good team, better then most people actually think. We will have won our place in the playoff and we can dream about the cup because we could win it...we never know.

after beating up on marginal teams we need some tough competetion and maybe even few losses just to make sure we are ready for playoff. I don't want to cruise and get destroyed by superior team, its blessing now that we are pretty much in the playoff!!

Although it would take a disaster of huge proportions for this team to miss the playoffs at this point... I'm still a bit nervous.

2 games against Ottawa, Buffalo and Jersey each. Fortunately, Ottawa and Buffalo haven't been themselves lately. New Jersey mini-series is sure to be huge.

Oh ya, and a game against the Bruins. Should be fun

No, especially not next Monday cuz I'm going for the second time this season

Last time I went Theo was a beast and played his best game of the year, his last actually. (Against Tampa 3-2)

Yes, it would really take a disaster to fall from a playoff spot at this juncture in time. Yes it would. Toronto already needs 10 pts in 8 games (a record of 5-3) and likewise for Atlanta and Florida if we lose ALL OUR REMAINING GAMES. I'd say our chances are close to 95%.

Thursday will be our last regulation loss. We'll finish with our best point total since 93-94. Don't worry at all.

Haven't been ourselves, no because of 7 key players injured, but we keep on winning most games

At this time of year, I'm worried every game until the one where they shake hands afterwards.

Afraid? No.

The Habs just finished the easiest part of the schedule and got 16 of 20 points. Mission accomplished.

The remaining 7 games will be difficult with 2 games against Ottawa, NJ and Buffalo. I think 3-3 in these games would be great. Then, hopefully, a win in the other game against Boston and the team finishes with 94 points.

The key in the last 7 games will be to continue to play well and keep the momentum heading into the playoffs, as well as players get a chance to rest, specifically Huet. We should see Abs at least for 1 of these games (there is a back to back set of games)

The key to Ottawa right now is Spezza/Heatly and Alfredson if he is back. Thier top defence is OUT thier top goalie is OUT
As long as Bonk Begin and Downey do a good job, Ottawa won't win.
The Habs have team speed and a good goalie now.

If we win thursday I'll be thrilled!!

Ottawa is a great hockey team, we'll have to be at our best to compete with them. We have a good chance with their injuries though, no doubt.
