  2. Well, that was ... best described by an adjective not fit for the Forum. ... MN is 40. That cushion is looking more like a floor. Our hold on a playoff spot is down to 1/2 a game.
  3. MN Picks for Saturday, February 23rd ... WAS @ BUF (1pm Eastern) NJD @ NYR (1pm) BOS @ STL (4pm) CAR @ DAL (5pm) LAK @ FLO (5pm) SJS @ CLB (5pm) MON @ TOR PIT @ PHI NYI @ VAN ... & Sunday, February 24th NYR @ WAS (12:30 Eastern) SJS @ DET (3:00) CAL @ OTT
  4. MN is 40. Carolina's still driving the bonus train: 2 points for a regulation loss vs Dallas, 1 point for an extra time loss, nothing for a Hurricanes win. Also, should the Canes win, a single bonus point is available from a regulation Pittsburgh loss in Philadelphia. Â
  5. No help from Florida last night, losing to Carolina in regulation so no bonus points. We did our own work, though, so there’s that. MN is 40. Board update later today or Saturday morning.
  6. Yeah, it's a little weird that way but it is what it is. I find it odd that an Atlantic time could play through the Metro division and vice versa in the same season. WC1 is definitely looking like the place to be to have much hope. TB looks near-unbeatable so falling to WC2 probably wouldn't be very enjoyable and securing a division spot to face Toronto or Boston is looking less likely. ... MN is 42. 2 bonus points available on Thursday: both come with a regulation Hurricanes loss to the Panthers, 1 point if they lose in regulation, nothing if Carolina wins.

  8. For sure we're in if we run the table. We've knocked 71 points (58%) off the MN with our own games so the remaining 42% came from bonus points (points lost by 9th place teams). If that trend continues, we need to get roughly 60% of those last 42 points - about 25 - from our own games. A record of 12-9-1 would do it. That said, I don't trust the bonus points to keep coming at such a pace so I'd just as soon run the table. ... MN is 42.
  9. Right win + right losses = 4 point drop. MN is 42. Updated board hopefully this evening.
  10. MN Picks for Tuesday, February 19th BUF @ FLO PIT @ NJD TBL @ PHI NYR @ CAR CLB @ MON TOR @ STL
  11. There's never a good time for an extended losing streak. Hopefully we can put an end to it at 3. MN is 46. A regulation Pittsburgh loss to the Rangers is good for 1 bonus point.
  12. Quiet week. Just the 1 bonus from the Rangers win over the Sabres. Tough game ahead versus the Lightning. Don't want to lose too much ground to the chasers. 2 & 1/2 games can disappear in a hurry. MN is 46.

  17. Yeah, pretty much the flip of the rest of the weekend. ... MN is 47.
  18. Buffalo loses 3-1 to Winnipeg. MN is 48. Carolina down 2-1 to New Jersey, 8 left in the third.
