After a must win game on Saturday we return to our regularly scheduled tanking. My apologies for the missing posts, I was more useless than usual last week, but back I am. Our Leafs still sit in fourth place in the lottery, not much changed in the standings over the past week. Some jumping around the bottom, but the top 5 stayed where they are.
Tonight we see part 2 of tank vs rebuild, Buffalo at Arizona:
Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens
No Lottery Implication
If you're a "No Habs No " type of person, a Lightning win puts them 1 point back of 1st in the Atlantic. If you're not, then you want a win. I'll take a 3 point game going either way.
(Lightning Fan Note: If the Lightning get a point tonight, they clinch a playoff spot)
Edmonton Oilers at Colorado Avalanche
Best Result: Edmonton win
There's a five point gap between Toronto and Edmonton. If the Oilers win just 3 more games than the Leafs over the last 2 weeks, we could get 3rd in the lottery....
This is what each team is playing for:
