Key Games Today

Games to keep an eye on today- Columbus plays on Long Island at 1pm and Toronto in New Jersey at 7pm.

Here are the most recent stats from Sports Club Stats of the teams I consider to be 'bubble' teams in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

 

 

In case you are wondering, 'GD' in the heading line is season goal differential.  The 'G' is probably something simple but my brain is dead right now.

Thanks, PK.

“G” = ‘games in-hand’

big day for Detroit (aren’t they all now?)

It’d be wonderful if the hapless islanders could pull off an upset. Couple that with a wings W and a Leafs loss and it’d be like Christmas

“GD” has often been used with references to Lashoff and Smith, and it didn’t mean goal differential. 

… similar to “Jesus, Lashoff” so frequently that it has become his first name.

Kudos to Smith though, since his beautiful backhanded feed to the other team he’s played forward, then defense again, then scored a PP goal, and hasn’t been costly on D.  Need more of the same.

Hey aren’t those the same 5 teams I highlighted in the last POS, as in 5 teams fighting for the last 3 musical chairs?

Not happy to see WAS get 2 points, the 2 games in hand Detroit has are our golden goose, if we can goose them into points.  that helps account for TOR’s % dropping below ours.

Typically by this time of year I’d be relaxed, wondering how many over 100 points the Wings would finish with, and if the Wing would start the playoffs with enough intensity.

Then once playoffs start pretty much all the time between games is like suspended animation waiting for the next game.  The last two seasons that has already started and will continue for the next 3 weeks and, hopefully, into the playoffs.

Blue Jackets already activating their defense into the offensive rush.

That last comment was brought to you by Pee Air.

The Islanders just handed the Wings a huge gift. Hopefully the Wings can use it properly.

Maybe that’s Karma.  Isles take Nabokov from us via waivers so that a couple years later he can shut oot the BJ’s and hand the Wings a golden opportunity.

Beauty.

Oh, and you’re welcome for the link as well. I had nothing else to do today anyways. So I watched that. Man.. Jackets looked like they didn’t even belong in the game.

41 shots.. but… maybe 3 were serious..
