Michael Leighton will go down to injury when we play Nashville and we will have to rely on Boucher down the stretch.
It won't come easy because it will take a ShootOut win against the Rangers in game 82 to get in the playoffs. Due to us having more wins then Montreal we will get the 7 seed. We make quick work of Jersey and beat them in 5, but it will be costly because we will lose Gagne, Carter, and Lappy for 10 games or so.
We then will play Boston in round 2 and make the most historic comeback in 35 years after winning a series when trailing 0-3. Boucher will get hurt in game 5, but that will be the same day Leighton comes back and he will be a rock for us. Gagne comes back prematurely and will score an OT winner in game 4. We will dominate games 5 and 6 but will fall in an early 3-0 hole in game 7, but comeback and score the GWG with about 7 minutes to go.
After making history we will draw the 8 seed Montreal Canadiens who will knock off Washington and Pittsburgh both in 7 games. Michael Leighton will have 3 shutouts and outplay the pre series conn smythe favorite Jaroslav Halak. Jeff Carter and Lappy return for game 4 and We will beat them in 5 games and in the clincher Mike Richard will lead the team to victory and then touch the Price of Wales trophy. We will play the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanely Cup Finals.
Flyers will beat the Blackhawks in 6 games and Danny Briere will win the Conn Smythe trophy
