For this to happen, NashV has to win both its games. But I don't know why, but I just don't think it'll be the case.
Tonight, big bounce back (please play rypien instead of ritchie to punch the enemy). Linden and Nazzy lead, Luongo snaps back to playing like he can, and we take it 4-2. The Oil are going to be playing loose, since they're out, and would love to spoil. But the nucks just play more disciplined against the oil, I don't know why.
Minny's all but clinched first in the NW, and the flames are all but in. Minny takes it 4-2.
Nashville vs St L? Given Legace's "hip flexor" (yeah, right), I don't have much hope. But, maybe this back up, Toivonen, plays like it's a St. Louis back-up vs the Canucks, and Brad Boyes goes insane and scores 4 goals (okay, I'm starting to fantasize here). Realistically, 3-2 NashV
But if they lose, tomorrow, Chi-town is going to be pumped, and hoping that Van loses Saturday, they go to town on NashV. In fact, I'm going out on a limb and picking them even if NashV wins tonight. 3-1.
That sets up one helluva game for Saturday. Win and your in. The flames will already be in if NashV loses one game, but they probably would love to spoil the Nucks chances. I think we discover some new life. 5-2 nucks.
Of course, I'm not willing to bet on these predictions...but there you go.
