Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhastchek of the Globe and Mail,
This is what we know for sure with a week to go in a delirious, nerve-wracking, throat-constricting National Hockey League playoff race:
The Vancouver Canucks are in; the Ottawa Senators are in; and the Calgary Flames will get in, provided they win one of their four remaining games.
The Edmonton Oilers are out; the miracle run of 2006 a long-forgotten memory. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens can technically both still make it, but in all probability, only one will. If that happens, it will likely be at the expense of the defending Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, meaning that for the first time in 80 years, both of last year’s finalists would fail to qualify for the playoffs.
