First time since 2004 for the Leafs in playoffs, congrats ! =D>

Montréal is really bad these past 5 games again last night Price let the team down ( 4 goals in 11 shots ) ... early golf if they continue that way.

Is Washington the Kings of 2013 ??

No, because it won't be surprising.

If Winnipeg somehow makes the playoffs, and then knocks out Pittsburgh, you can start talking about "the Kings of 2013". If Washington continues to dominate in the playoffs like they have the past month, well, they ARE the 3 seed, and they've been playing out-of-this-world after a lot of underachieving.

It's worth adding that the Kings haven't been considered one of the best teams since back in the day when they had Gretzky, and on the flipside Washington packs some of the best players in the world, won the presidents trophy not long ago and have been underperforming the last few years. It's hard to compare these teams even though I'm sure the journalists at nhl.com will gladly do so just to have something to write about. I almost enjoyed reading all the far fetched uninteresting stories they published during the lockout. They redefined my understanding of the word "desperate", these guys will seriously write about anything !

The TO should put up a poll asking us if the red wings will make the playoffs or not, and if possible I would like the city of Detroit to provide us with a picture of Serbias face when they get eliminated, a video would be even better.

While I'd like to see the Wings make the playoffs and continue the streak, I'm doubtful they will right now. They committed stupid mistakes in their loss to Calgary, one of the League's worst teams who had Detroit's number all season, and then couldn't take advantage of a tired and slow Canucks team last night. They've been leaving valuable points on the table consistently. Right now, they don't deserve to be a playoff team. And if they make it, their reward will be an additional four or five games against Chicago, and then an early summer. This team isn't going anywhere as currently constructed.

There have been years when I get mad when the Wings are eliminated, but this year, whether it's in the regular season or the conference quarters, I won't be angry; I'll be expecting it.

Bollocks.

Pens are 3-0 against Boston, Montreal, Washington this season. In fact, against (projected) playoff teams we only have 4 losses and we haven't even had Crosby, Malkin or Neal for the last few wins.

Assuming we get those three back, I'll be disappointed with anything other than a Cup finals appearance. I'd accept a loss to Chicago (not that I'd be happy nor expect it) but anything less will be worse than last year's debacle.

How about a conference quarterfinals exit against the Rangers? Lundqvist is definitely capable of stealing a series and if the penis (oops, I meant pens) will be without crosby, malkin and neal then I will not even raise an eyebrow if they get eliminated.

I'd actually like to see the Stars make the playoffs...
but 3 points away from Columbus with 3 games left.

Chicago & Pittsburgh are both tough outs when healthy
and would make another good Cup Final.

Even without those three we still have a better offense. It'll fully depend on Fleury's play.

I was at the Wings win over Los Angeles last night, and I'm on my way downtown for their tilt against Nashville tonight. If the Wings win, and Dallas beats Columbus, the Wings clinch a playoff berth. GO WINGS!

we better win tomorrow. It would suck going into the playoffs with three straight losses, all to non-playoff teams

What difference would it make? Doesn't affect the standings... rest everyone, who cares.
