It is th same thing as for Division Bobus, but Philadelphia has to lose as well for a chance for 2 bonuses.

TO-NO-GO Bonus

...1 or 2 bonuses - if Carolina gets points (vs New Jersey)

MN pace - 2.2 points per habs game

Next MN milestone: 25 - current Mn forecast: Feb. 26th

Member predictions:

#1 - Mar 1st, vs. NJ (made on Feb.6, MN 46)

Admiral - Mar 3rd, vs. SJ (Feb.6, MN 46)

Chocolate - Feb 26th, vs. Atl (Feb.8, MN 44)

Reached milestones:

MN 125 - Nov.13th, predicted by AK (Oct. 29, MN 141)

MN 99 - Dec.15th, predicted by HLD (Nov. 15, MN 123)

MN 75 - Jan.8th, predicted by HHFR (Dec. 22, MN 99)

MN 50 - Feb.2nd, predicted by mateus (Jan. 15, MN 71)

MN on Oct. 2 was - 165

MN on Oct. 31 was - 139 (drop by 26 in 11 games, pace 2.36)

MN on Nov. 30 was - 113 (drop by 26 in 14 games, pace 1.86)

MN on Jan. 31 was - 52 (drop by 34 in 12 games, pace 2.83)

Current MN - 44 (drop by 8 in 4 games in February, pace 2.00)

Note, the pace of 2 MN points per habs game is the border line between playoffs and golf pastures. If the pace is higher then 2, the habs are heading to the playoffs. If it is less than 2, we are out. If it is exactly 2, it is a tie break situation.

MN forecast by the end of February - 22 (at the beginning of February the forecast was 21, the best is 21 and the worst 24).

well no bonus or home ice with the results so far today.. and we are even 5th now with the pens win :angry:

Senators 6 Canadiens 1 - RECAP

OTTAWA (AP) -Jason Spezza scored three goals and a career-high six points, and the Ottawa Senators' top line combined for 15 points in a 6-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Daniel Alfredsson, who returned after missing four games because of a nagging hip injury, had two goals and three assists, and Dany Heatley had a goal and three assists as Ottawa's high-scoring trio was reunited for the first time in 13 games.

Spezza gave the Senators' a 2-0 lead 1:42 in with a pair of goals 1:20 apart. The playmaking center assisted on goals by Alfredsson and Heatley before completing his first NHL hat trick on a power play 13:36 into the second to increase the lead to 5-0.

Spezza assisted on Alfredsson's second of the game, on a power play 2:28 into the third, for his sixth point of the game.

Andrei Kostitsyn scored Montreal's only goal on a 5-on-3 advantage with 25 seconds remaining in the second.

Ray Emery made 33 saves to win his second straight start.

With 72 points, Ottawa opened up a five-point advantage for the Eastern Conference and Northeast Division leads over Montreal, which had closed to within one earlier this week.

Alfredsson's five points increased his season total to 73 in 49 games. Spezza has 71 points in 50 games, and Heatley, who has seven points in two games since returning from a separated shoulder, has 63 in 45.

Heatley had two goals and an assist in Thursday's 5-4 win over Florida, his first game since he injured his shoulder in Ottawa's victory over Detroit on Jan. 12.

Rookie Canadiens goalie Carey Price earned his first career assist on Kostitsyn's goal. Price stopped 22 shots in relief of Cristobal Huet, who left 4:45 in after allowing three goals on four shots.

Ottawa opened the scoring 42 seconds in when Spezza beat center Tomas Plekanec on a faceoff to the right of Huet and deflected in Anton Volchenkov's point shot for his 21st goal.

Spezza was opportunistic in giving Ottawa a 2-0 lead. Huet stopped Heatley's shot from the left side, but the puck sat beside him in front of the goal line as he fell to the ice. Spezza outraced Bryan Smolinski to the loose puck and pushed it over the line for his second of the game, 22nd this season.

Alfredsson ended Huet's outing when he made it 3-0 with his 33rd goal.

Heatley scored his 28th at 10:17 of the second, batting his own rebound past Price to finish off a passing play begun by Alfredsson and Spezza.

Notes: Huet ended a streak of 13 consecutive starts Thursday. He was 9-3-1 over that stretch. ... Canadiens D Roman Hamrlik missed his third straight game because of a viral infection. ... RW Mathieu Dandenault was left out of Montreal's lineup as struggling RW Michael Ryder returned after sitting out three games. ... Spezza had a goal and four assists in a 7-2 win over Toronto on Oct. 26, 2006. ... C Cody Bass and RW Brian McGrattan were healthy scratches for Ottawa.

THE GOING GOT TOUGH, WE GOT SCHOOLED:

There is no shame in losing to the best. And if anyone had any question marks about the Ottawa Senators being the best in the East, last night’s spectacle was Ottawa flexing it’s muscle and warning the masses. They’re still #1.

Since the beginning of the season, the Senators have been in a class of their own. The recent challenge of the Montreal Canadiens for the top seat was the closes they’ve come to mediocrity, but clearly they wanted nothing of it. The Montreal Canadiens are clearly the second best team in the East, however this may change quickly depending on how and when we’ll bounce back from two consecutive losses to Division rivals. As it stands today however, we tried unbuckling the Sens from the top, we stuck our head through the door, and got knocked with a giant cast iron pan upside the head. We’ll try again I’m sure…at least one more time before the season’s end. Hopefully that time around results will be more favourable, but for now we know our place. For a team who was supposed to miss the playoffs, 2nd best in the East is a great place to be.

As I begin to think about the post-season, I wonder if a part of me doesn’t wish the Sens killer Toronto Maple Turds sneak in to the playoffs in eight, only to knock out the Sens in the first round, then get eliminated in the second round.

On a separate note, there were three important points I wanted to bring up from last night’s game.

1) As expected, Koivu had one hack of a game. He was intense on all his shifts, despite being down by several goals. The little guy was throwing the body around, and got his line energized. Despite no goals, the top line combined for several good scoring chances.

2) Carrey Price seems in good order. Yeah he lost on Thursday and let in 3 goals last night, but if one foicuses on his performance, he’s back to being cucumber boy…as in cool as a.

3) After letting in three goals in less than five minutes, the team didn’t pack up and get ready to go home. We pushed back and we pushed hard. 4 Posts and a dozen scoring chances (with 4-5 of the on an open net with bad bounces) tells me that we were not out played that bad. Sure bad bounces and luck is part of the game, but the fact of the matter is we were not totally out of it.

I’m sure many will focus on the goal spread and begin to plan for the demise and elimination of our HABS from the playoff picture, but in essence we were fairly toe to toe with the #1 team to beat in the East.

The boys just have to take this lesson learnt, move on and realise now they cannot waste opportunities like the TO game and waste points. The primary objective should be to cut the loosing streak at two, and get on a winning streak against some conference rivals. Unfortunately our schedule is not a bouquet of roses, but as I always like to say: “You can’t change the wind. You just trim your sails and face the music”.

NL STANDINGS FEBRUARY 10:

Have to run out, no time for standing updates. I’ll get the refreshed tomorrow.

it was painful to watch but at the same time it was the sens...with heatly and alffy back in the line-up...no surprise that line came out with a bang and ive got a hunch but of them wouldve played on tuesday injury or no injury.

i like price's performance and hope its a sign of a few more games to come because i personally think, in the position were in, his playing time is as important as the points we get now.

Onzeee gets the only point last night with 6 of 8 correct predictions.

He has now climbed to within 1 point of the leaders.

It is getting pretty crowded at the top right now.

I am definitely feeling the heat. :lol:
