Last night, step one in a five step process that will result in the Montreal Canadiens missing the playoffs took place. Here's what else needs to happen to give us one hell of a chip to play in future trash-talking:
- The New York Rangers need to win both games against the Philadelphia Flyers.
- The Philadelphia Flyers need to take one of those losses to overtime or the shootout.
- The Boston Bruins need to pick up just one point in their last two games.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs need to beat the Montreal Canadiens in regulation in Montreal.
Now, that last one tells you just how hard it is going to be for everything to play out exactly as we hope so light candles, go to church, sacrifice a virgin, or whatever you need to do to curry favour with the hockey gods. On a completely unrelated note, I will be in Kingston this weekend. Onto the links:

Don't got his dancing shoes on. Of course, he might not be as glad to be standing on our grave if he realised that the senators suck, they are going to get nuked in the playoffs, and their draft pick will stink.
