Tank Watch 2016: Almost at the end

The season is almost over and we're 25 days from the Draft Lottery!

Last night the Leafs lost to the Florida Panthers, though two goals were called back on review. The requests came from the Leafs' GM box because we can't go winning the last four games of the season.

We have the Bruins joining us late in the season. They're one point out of the last Atlantic and Eastern Wild Card spots, so it'll be a close race between them, the Red Wings, and the Flyers. The Canucks picked the wrong time to start winning games, they jumped three spots out of the top-five picks.

Chychrun, Nylander, and McLeod will know their fates better as they play game 7s in their first round series' tonight. In Finland, Karpat (Puljujarvi) is playing Tappara (Laine) in the SML semi-finals. Right now Tappara is leading 2-0.
