It's a big game tonight. Carolina vs Columbus. We need them this to go to OT and Carolina needs a point tonight. let's all put our hatred of Arturs Irbe aside and cheer on the Staalicanes!
|Team||Points||Odds at #1|
Leafs are sitting in 5th, so we need to embrace the shootout instead of curse it tonight.
Columbus Blue Jackets at Carolina Hurricanes
Best outcome: Carolina over Columbus in Overtime
A 3 point game is great for Toronto, it would put for Carolina and Columbus at 59 points, 1 back of the Leafs, and give the Leafs back 4th place.
Dallas Stars at Philadelphia Hurricanes
Best outcome: Dallas over Philly in overtime
This result puts both of these teams at 70 points, well back of the Leafs.
Boston Bruins at Ottawa Senators
Best outcome: Ottawa in regulation
The Sens beating the Bruins moves them ahead of Florida, lower in the lottery and keeps the Bruins from feeling any safer about their lottery spot. win-win-win.
Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens
Best Outcome: Depends on your needs
Lightning fans want them to win, non-habs fans mostly agree with that. i would be ok with a Habs win, because it keeps round one Habs/Bruins.
Winnipeg Jets at St. Louis Blues
Best Outcome: St. Louis in regulation
This gets the Blues closer to Nashville for the division lead, and keeps Winnipeg from building a lead over LA for the final wild card spot.
Los Angeles Kings at Colorado Avalanche
Best outcome: Colorado over LA in overtime
No real lottery implications here, it would make Florida's odds better though. Plus LA gets a point to creep up on Winnipeg. LA winning isn't terrible either.
