Leafs Lottery Guide March 18: Still in 4th!

New, comment

Hurricanes didn't win last night, but they got a point and gave the Leafs sole position on 4th in the lottery

Almost 100 comments yesterday. Way to keep up the chatter Aberman.

Carolina got a point last night and welcome to the lottery club Calgary!

Tonight's lottery game:

Columbus Blue Jackets at New Jersey Devils
Best Result: Columbus over New Jersey in overtime
Only one lottery game tonight, but we need Columbus to pull off a win and keep the gap between 5th and 6th growing. We definitely don't want to fall out of the top 4, but 6th would be much worse.

There's also the Blackhawks at the Rangers and the Ducks host the Kings. LA needs a win to keep Calgary back.

A light schedule tonight. Yet I'm 5 hours late with this...

Here's a chart to distract you.
