Last night we wanted both Carolina and Columbus to win and 1/2 is ok I guess. Let's look at our standings as we head into Maple Leafs game night:
|Team||Points||Odds at #1|
Welcome to the lottery Winnipeg! All the bottom teams gained points, and that gap between us and Columbus is bigger and that's great. Carolina needs to pick up its socks and start winning some games.
Dallas Stars at Washington Capitals
Best Result: Dallas wins
Nothing too applicable here, but in case the Leafs decide to go on a win streak to end the season, we want these lower lottery teams to pick up points.
Edmonton Oilers at Columbus Blue Jackets
Best Result: Edmonton over Columbus in OT
This is one we need to be a 3 pointer. Edmonton wins, gets closer to dropping out of 2nd place, and Columbus makes that gap 1 point bigger.
Toronto Maple Leafs at Calgary Flames
Best Result: Calgary in Regulation
We can't lose anymore ground to Carolina for 4th. Someone slash Phil's tires so he misses the team plane.
Another important night. Go Oilers, Flames, and Blue Jackets!
