    Wings lose in OT. Now tied for points with the Leafs but have 2 games in hand so sit 7th.

    Heh. Columbus/Detroit play tomorrow... a Blue Jacket win in OT would be nice... coupled with a Leafs regulation loss to the Blues that day. Bounce!

    Interesting article on Carlyle and Bernier by Howard Berger (memba him?) regarding the game in LA when Bernier pulled himself out...

    http://www.bergerbytes.ca/leafs-cant-or-wont-bail-out-carlyle/

    Carlyle knew he was hurting and let Bernier make the call on if he was starting or not. Interesting.

    I'm usually the one to say "I don't give a Diddle about how bad or good (insert team other than Ottawa here) are..." but I will suspend that attitude to cheer for the Dirty Leafs to fail miserably and epically.

    Very interesting article. If you don't care for advanced stats, don't bother.
    http://www.senatorsextra.com/main/numbers-game-on-possession-playoffs-and-paper-tigers

    What it shows is that, from a "Score-Adjusted Fenwick %" the Leafs are pretty close to the Sabres in the East. The Bruins and Jackets are turning it on. And the Penguins are falling fast.

    (the red bar is the last 25 games; the blue bar is all the games prior to the last 25)

    Pretty similar team to us - except they won a Cup in 06.

    Holy Dung, to add to this they said on NHL Radio just now that Rutherford is retiring and Ron Francis will be taking over, so I guess he wants some of those guys out.

    It's a country club, guys are too comfortable and it shows in their play. Spezza is the exact same way... there's no extra effort required because things are just great in their life.

    Leafs have a one point lead for the last wildcard spot. They play St. Louis tonight and Philly on Friday. They will likely lose both these games.

    So, in the spirit of the #18wheeler, ideal scenario today:

    - Leafs lose in regulation to the Blues
    - Caps beat the Kings in regulation/OT
    - Columbus beats Detroit in OT

    Leafs will be sitting 10th if that plays out.

    Habs stopped the B's win streak last night in a pretty rough affair... that would make for a nice playoff matchup for sure.

    When your owner only cares about "cost per point" a country club is what you get.

    You're not in the winning business, you're in the enterainment business.
