The Canucks beat the Leafs 4-1 last night and my rec team lost out 4th straight round robin game, so we're destined for the last place game in our playoffs. Sadly we do not have a lottery, so all we get for losing a lot is sadness.
It's late on Sunday to write this, but so it goes. The IceDogs are beating Windsor 6-1 after 2, so it's an ok afternoon today.
Here are your lottery games for Sunday March 15th.
Carolina Hurricanes at Columbus Blue Jackets
Best result: Carolina in regulation
This one is important, we need the Hurricanes to win 2 more games than the Leafs over the rest of the season, so the Leafs get 4th place, then we'll get one of Hanafin, Strome, or Marner (OR CROUSE!)
Florida Panthers at New York Rangers
Best result: Florida over New York
A lottery team that still has playoffs as the goal, giving them some points keeps those lower lotto teams farther from getting better picks.
Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues
Best Result: St. Louis over Dallas
St. Louis beating Dallas ties them with Nashville for the Central, and if they take the division, thats possibly makes Nashville's 1st better for the Leafs.
