With 7 Games to Go (and one less sleep)

26-Mar-11 @ 8:00

Last Night: Canucks were idle in Columbus last night. Getting ready for Rick Nash and the BJ's. We have 107 points. The Ducks beat the Hawks last night to swap 7th and 8th spot. More about that in a moment. The Flames and the Oil had a wild Battle of Alberta with Iggy and crew eventually winning in a Shoot Out. Still Calgary remains 3 points back of 8th spot and has Dallas ahead of them in 9th.

Teams are starting to be eliminated. The following teams can book team times for 10-Apr-11; Colorado, Edmonton, Islanders, Panthers and Ottawa.

If the playoffs were to start tomorrow we would face the oh oh Chicago Blackhawks in the first round. We look to be a far better team this year. They look to be no quite as good a team this year. May as well dispatch them early. We do have to beat San Jose, Detroit and Chicago or a hot team that just beat one of the west's top teams. The sooner the defending champs are out of this the better.

The other west matchups are: Detroit vs. Anaheim; San Jase vs. Nashville; and Phoenix vs. LA Kings.

The east matchups are: Philly vs. Buffalo; Washington vs. Rangers; Boston vs. Montreal (owwwah); and Pittsburgh vs. Tampa Bay.

We are 16 wins away from the Holly Grail and none of those 16 games will be played before 13-Apr-2011.
