I am guessing the 8th spot in the East will need at least 90 points if not more(95ish)
yes i looked at the last 4 seasons it was (for 8th in East)
88 points, 94, 92, and 93 or something like those in the last 4 seasons
so i adjusted up and even that might be low.
But if they won 5 more games than what i said before they would go
19-13-7 in last 39
then they would have
14-22-7 + 19-13-7 = 33-35-14 which is 80 points and still 8-14 points out. But still better. They could get 19 wins out of 39 games.
Not likely.....but possible.
So you've never seen a goalie with a late lead and the opponent's net empty,try for an empty net goal?
The greatest goalie of all time, Martin Brodeur does it quite often. It's actually something cool to see and a skill to be able to do when done well. Hextall used to do it as well.
A shame our goalie was so crappy tonight though. I mean 3 goals he let it was terrible. We need Roli back. I'm pretty sure he's done ok in his last two games. 3 goals in unacceptable, Poulin would never let this happen.
