NJD eliminated today after losing to Rangers.

Calgary leading 2-1 over Minny end of 2nd.

Magic number for Canucks to take Division is three heading into toady. A Calgary win in regulation would reduce that to 1.

I am really hoping that Calgary can hold on and win in regulation. The sooner the Division is locked up the better. It would be nice to have our last 3 games be almost meaningless. Get players like Kassian more ice time. Play around with line combos.

The Wild lose (and if they don't watch it, they could miss the playoffs.) The division is all but assured.... however Anaheim is only three points up, and losing tonight. 2nd is not out of the question, and would likely get us a better 1st round matchup, rather than one of St Louis/San Jose/LA which is how 4th through 6th seem to be blending up. I mean, hey, gotta beat them all, but a slumping Wild team would be a pleasant sight in the first round.

LA wins. Puts SJ and STL as most likely opponents. Both will be tossups, but I'd rather play SJ, not as bruising, and their road record not as good. Either way, will be drawn out series I expect.

Both St. Louis and SJS will be tough opponents. But then I doubt there would be an easy opponent once the playoffs start. Unless we have a decent defence it won't matter. But with Higgins expected back and both Bieksa and Tanev expected back I think we stand a good chance round one. Injuries will tell the tale for us again this year I think. We don't have the depth we've had in previous years.

These last 3 games will hopefully allow us to get ready, and work on the PP!!!!!

Anything can happen this week, but I'm really hoping Vancouver draws SJ for the 1st round. That said, I have a feeling we'll be seeing StL against the guys. Even should they win, there are going to be some banged-up bodies coming out of that series.

Yeah, HW, there are no 'easy' opponents but I would rather not see the Canucks' physical resiliency tested this early. SJ has jettisoned a lot of the players who did a number on the Canucks last time they met (Murray, McGinn, Clowe). So yeah, they still have the skill and are arguably faster than they were but I'd still rather see them than Backes, Stewart and Co. ramming the Canucks' D into the end-boards on a regular basis. I'd still give them goods odds against the Blows, but after that it starts getting cringe-worthy.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

I want us to play the Hawks ASAP as I think we will 'expose' them.
