Coming up on the last 2 weeks before the playoffs and there's a lot of teams crowding the wild card queue.
Who's gonna make it in?

Last month the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadians played a thrilling game that was tied 2-2 after regulation. The NHL's 3-on-3 overtime format (in its 2nd season) was also exciting but failed to produce a winner.

A regular season game like this should just end in a tie. The teams were evenly matched. But no, the NHL uses the silly shootout. Does the NBA settle ties with a free throw contest? Does MLB use a home run derby? Shootouts are really stupid.

I still have hope for either the Penguins or the Rangers to get there and for one of them to claim the Stanley.

@jcboy,
I don't like shootouts much either but I really hate the hold up when they do the off-sides conference with Toronto on a disputed goal.

@Sturgis,
Last nights report that the "king" will be out for 3 weeks with a hip injury can't be good news for the Rangers. Or it could be if he gets some rest for the playoffs

The Pens need Chris Letang to repeat. No way around it. We don't know when he'll be back.

@panzade,
As we approach the start of the MLB season, a reminder: Every team now plays 19 games against each of 4 opponents within its division (76 games), and 6 or 7 games against each of 10 opponents from other divisions within its own league (66 games). [This leaves 20 interleague games.] 76 games out of 162 are played against just 4 teams! That's so ******* boring.

On the bright side, the NHL playoffs start just after baseball season! Razz

Too bad they can't be here for it.

Da Broons are holding on to 3rd in the Atlantic Division by their fingernails.
Dropping last night's game to the Leafs didn't help.

The Rangers played in Minnesota the other night (aka The State of Hockey) so the announcers were talking about American-born hockey players and mentioned the 1980 gold medal winning US Olympic team. "Most of these players probably weren't born." The oldest player on each team was born in 1982. Sigh. Cool

@George,
And now a loss to the Senators.
Prepare to man the life boats!

The Panthers too are seeing their pilot light slowly extinguished. Now I root for the Capitals and Ovie.
Anybody see Crosby score the one-handed goal? He's amazing.

The NHL has officially decided to not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. Now the question is how many Europeans, particularly Russians, will still insist on participating and thus have to abandon their NHL teams for 2 weeks next February. That'll be more fun than the Olympics themselves.

Tonight the Bruins can take control of their own destiny.
Beat the Bolts and they're in the playoffs.
Lose, and it comes down to a tangle of if-then-else scenarios.

@George,
I'm thinking the Bruins are in.
Tampa Bay is missing a lot of good players.

@panzade,
I'm thinking you're right.

But as a New Englander, I have restricted access to optimism
(and decent weather).

The Bruins won without the "Little Ball Of Hate" who got thrown out of the game for spearing. The NHL doesn't suspend for spearing very often but in this case they should teach Marchand a lesson.
