If you have anything else going on right now, don’t bother to read this post. It’s quite stupid.
If Montreal can beat Washington, Washington will continue to have zero points, as will Philadelphia if they lose to the Rangers tonight. Montreal will have 4 points, the same as Toronto if the Leafs can lose to the Islanders, who will also jump up to 4 points. The Rangers will have 4 points with their thumping of the Flyers, and if Carolina can beat Buffalo, the Hurricanes will finally have two points while Buffalo would remain at 4, the same as Montreal. Florida can leap to 4 points if they can handle the Sens, who would stay at 4.
Go Habs. It’s only game three but it’s a big game. We’d only be one point behind the first-place Bruins, who have five points. Although if the Leafs, Sabres, and Sens all win their games, they’ll have six points each and jump ahead of Boston.
