The 3 teans in the Metro Div all get into the playoffs--but Pitt is the only one flying and both TOR and MTL have more points than NYR and CAR


if everything stayed the same--would this mean that TOR and MTL would be the 4th and 5th seeds and they play each other?

We tend to do that on occasion (Chicago, Boston, now Tampa)...which is why, really, I'm not afraid of meeting any time in the playoffs.  Just gotta get there.

@ionsys I don't agree with it but I think actually the format would be Toronto at Tampa because they are 3rd and 2nd in the Atlantic and Boston is at home to a wild card. In the Metro Pittsburgh is at home to a wild card and has the higher standing compared to Boston so they get the advantage of the lower point total wild card which is Carolina. Leaving Montreal to play Boston. Rangers home to Flyers in the 2 v 3 Metro match up.
So as of the moment  Boston Habs, Bolts Leafs, Pens Hurricane, and Rangers Flyers.

@ionsys nope 1st 3 spots are by division then wild cards for 7th an 8th

so Mon would be wild card and play Pittsburgh. Toronto would play Tampa as it is right now

@Jmessih I've been bashing Lupul lots lately, but he made a solid play getting to the corner 1st and playing it to Kadri

@wendelsfist @Optimustic I learned something myself.  I had no idea what it was either.  I've heard of them, but usually they are referred to  as minor injuries.  This report makes them sound like they could be serious, especially over time.
